In 2015, Nautilus was a media partner for the LISW, and hosted a seminar on the demand for shore-based maritime jobs. The 'Shore enough?' seminar explored the demographics of supply and demand for skilled seafarers with particular reference to city-based services. The Union also highlighted to the industry the skill loss associated with not being more inclusive and proactive, particularly in recruiting and retaining women across the board, but especially when coming ashore.
