Maine ‘s modern economy is based on agriculture, fishing, shipbuilding, timber and pulp and paper industries. In recent decades, tourism has been developing rapidly and successfully in the state, as well as high-tech, knowledge-intensive industries.
The main agricultural crops of Maine are potatoes (the northernmost district of the state, Aroostook, is especially famous for its potato crops), cereals (mainly fodder corn and oats), and legumes. The state grows fruits and berries (apples, cranberries, raspberries, strawberries). Maine ranks first among all US states in terms of production of blueberries, a quarter of this extremely popular berry in the USA is grown here. Maine is one of the largest producers of traditional New Englandmaple syrup and maple sugar.
Farmers in Maine raise cattle, pigs, and poultry. Many dairy products and eggs are produced here. The cultivation of valuable fish species (salmon, trout) is also widespread.
Commercial fishing plays an important role in the Maine economy; cod, flounder, haddock, and herring are caught in coastal waters. Maine leads the US in lobster (lobster) production, and is also famous for its other seafood (mussels, crabs, sea urchins).
Granite, sand, crushed stone and other building materials, as well as semi-precious stones (amethysts, topazes, tourmalines) are mined in Maine.
