There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting SEACOR Marine shares can be evaluated.

SEACOR Marine's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

SEACOR Marine's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of SEACOR Marine shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of SEACOR Marine shares traded daily (recently around 137578.81773399).

In this case SEACOR Marine's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 SEACOR Marine shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0168% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable SEACOR Marine shares, roughly 17 shares are currently held short).
