What are the major industries in Maine?

Report as

Maine's main industries center around timber: paper, lumber, and other wood products top their output. (Maine is the #1 exporter of toothpicks!)
Maine also produces many leather goods, textiles, electronics, and remains a bastion of shipbuilding.
Aside from industrial output, agriculture is an important part of Maine's output; eggs, dairy products, blueberries, maple syrup and maple sugar lead the list of Maine's farm products. Maine produces 25% of all blueberries in the North American continent.
Fishing is also still a mainstay of Maine's economy, with lobstering leading the way.
