"Total landings from marine commercial fishing in Canada were valued at $1.89 billion (932 thousand tonnes) in 2008. This represents a $70 million (-4%) decrease compared to 2007, owing mainly to decreases in the landed value on the Atlantic coast of herring, mackerel and shrimp respectively and, with the exception of sockeye, of salmon species on the Pacific coast."
"Total landings from marine commercial fishing in Canada have reached a value of $1.9 billion (1.1 million tonnes) in 2006. This translates into a $197 million (-9%) decrease compared to 2005, owing mainly to the snow crab price drop as well as lower prices for herring, clams, Pacific geoduck and Pacific Dungeness crab."

In the past two years, APEC has produced reports on the economic impact of the forest industries in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. Firms in this industry, one of the most significant in the region, face an increasingly complex environment. This article highlights key findings of the two reports, with data updated to the most recent year and coverage extended, where possible, to the four Atlantic provinces. The value of forest-related activity in the Atlantic provinces in 1998 was over $1.3 billion.
Atlantic Canada made sizeable gains in exports over the past decade due to higher exports of energy and mining products, but its non-mineral exports dropped by 20% between 2000 and 2010. Although all four Atlantic provinces experienced an increase in non-mineral exports to non-US markets between 2000 and 2010, only in Prince Edward Island was this sufficient to outweigh the loss of export revenues in the principal US market.
