In early WW2, how much of the merchant marine was American?

WW2, before the US entered, ran from 1939 Sep 01 to 1941 Dec 07. During this time, a lot of merchant vessels sailed in convoy to Britain. I am wondering, of all the people who crewed those vessels, how many were American, versus how many were Canadian or British. Note, I'm not asking for a death toll. I'm asking for a composition of them all.
