More about New Brunswick

The Saint John Valley in the west, the only truly agricultural area of the province, is one of the more important agricultural regions in maritime Canada. The valley is a major potato-producing area, and Grand Falls is the principal center. Potatoes are the leading cash crop of New Brunswick, and there are over 400 potato farms in the province. Farther south along the valley, apples are the dominant crop.

A second region of important agricultural activity includes the valleys that run parallel to the southern shore of the province to the lands around Moncton. These lands have been diked to protect them from the Bay of Fundy. This region represents the largest area of good agricultural land in the province, and it is a leading dairy area of the Maritimes. Field crops, mainly oats and hay cut from cultivated grasses, are grown to support the dairy herds. Some farming is carried on in the eastern coastal region but is most often a part-time occupation for fishers.

Most of New Brunswick's agricultural produce is consumed in the province, except potatoes and some fruits, such as blueberries and strawberries, which are shipped to other Canadian provinces, the United States, and other countries.

In spite of the earlier depletions of the timber supply, 83 percent of New Brunswick is forested. Private ownership accounts for 30 percent of this timberland, while the public land total accounts for 50 percent. The remainder of the timberland is controlled by industrial freehold. Eastern New Brunswick, which contains both coniferous and mixed forests, is an important base of the pulp and paper industry. Chatham and Newcastle are sawmill centers; pulp, plywood, and pressed wood are manufactured in the area. The central and northern parts of New Brunswick have a greater wealth of timber and a more developed lumber industry. Some of this timber is floated downstream to the mills. The southern area began to be developed in the 1960s. Other centers are Bathurst for paper, Dalhousie for newsprint, Saint John for paper products, and Edmundston for pulp manufacturing. Spruce is the principal species cut for pulping.

The fishing industry of southern New Brunswick is based on the fisheries of the Bay of Fundy. The great tides of the bay bring in plankton, on which the fish feed. The main species caught in New Brunswick are lobster, which alone count for one-half of the total value, snow crab, herring, scallop, and shrimp. Blacks Harbour, with one of the world's largest sardine canneries, is the leading center of the industry.

The eastern coast fishers catch herring and cod. They also share some of the fine lobster grounds of Northumberland Strait. The cod fishery was closed from 1993 to 1997 because of a drastic decline in the number of fish, but was reopened in 1997 on a limited basis.

New Brunswick ranks first in Canada in the value of mineral production in lead, zinc, peat, and bismuth. The province ranks second in Canada for potash, antimony, and silver. The Brunswick Number 12 mine near Bathurst is one of the largest base-metal deposits in the world.

Coal production is centered on Minto. New Brunswick in 1998 produced 280,000 metric tons of coal. Most of the production is used for fuel for New Brunswick's power-generating plants. Gypsum is quarried near Moncton. Peat is dug in the region east of Bathurst. Most of the remainder of New Brunswick's mineral production also is derived from nonmetallics, which include potash, salt, stone, sand and gravel, clay, and lime.

In 1997 manufacturing produced 13 percent of the New Brunswick's gross domestic product (GDP). The principal products manufactured in the province include wood pulp; paper and paper products; fish products; sawmill and planing mill products; ships; meat products; soft drinks; dairy products; newspapers, magazines, and periodicals; bakery products; structural metal products; wooden doors and windows; construction and mining machinery; plastic products; and ready-mix concrete.

Manufacturing is concentrated in the Saint John and Moncton areas. Saint John, including Lancaster and East Saint John, is by far the major industrial center. Its industries include wood pulp and paper manufacturing; food processing; brewing; oil refining; and the manufacture of clothing, household goods, and ships for the Canadian navy. Moncton's industries produce meat, fabricated metal items, machinery, and fertilizer. Fredericton, an administrative and educational center, has mostly light industries, printing, and high-technology firms. Bathurst, Edmundston, and Dalhousie have major pulp and paper mills.

In 2000 the nuclear power plant at Point Lepreau, near Saint John, accounted for 46 percent of New Brunswick's electricity production. Coal-fired plants produced 39 percent, plants burning petroleum 7 percent, and hydroelectric facilities, 8 percent. Developed hydroelectric sites on the St. John River are Grand Falls, Beechwood, and Mactaquac. Another hydroelectric installation is near the point where the Tobique River enters the St. John River. New Brunswick's power system is interconnected with the power systems of Nova Scotia, Québec, Prince Edward Island, and New England.
