In this case Castor Maritime's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Castor Maritime shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0022% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Castor Maritime shares, roughly 2 shares are currently held short).
