1 The water transportation sector (North American Industrial Classification System [NAICS] 483) includes industries providing water transportation of passengers and cargo using water craft, such as ships, barges, and boats. The sector is composed of two industry groups: one for deep sea, coastal, and Great Lakes; and one for inland water transportation. This split typically reflects the difference in equipment used. Scenic and sightseeing water transportation services are excluded.
