The Great Houses of the humans financed a lot of the original exploration the region they named the Empire of the Shark.  Their desire for new lands to settle and to colonize combined with the gold they possessed to fund the boat building and crews needed to man them made the original discovery of the Isle of Caspiar and the founding of Dragon Port possible.

Together with the engineering prowess of the Gnomes and Dwarves, a profitable alliance was made, with all parties enriching themselves along the way.  The Capitalist Cooperative of Grand Houses was founded as a governing body to oversee the exploration, building, trading, and shipping, with the profit of the Grand Houses the first and most important consideration.
