Does anyone know who owned the slave ships?

Question:There is a way to learn of the names of the ships and the owners. The yarmulke people don't want darky to know this one. Also the ones that owned the slave ships were also the primary owners of the plantations in South America. I bet not many knew that South America had many times more slaves delivered to South America than North America?

The British and Dutch owned the most slave ships. The US was third.
The East India Company was given a monopoly over slave trade to America for most of the 1700 s
Slave ships were owned by bankers, these in turn operated by privateers, similar to the opium clippers that plied the ASIAN trade routes.
