Current situation

After declining to a low of $963 million in 2010, domestic exports of Nova Scotia agricultural, fishery, and food products have grown by more than $1 billion to $2.1 billion in 2016. This acceleration in seafood exports has put this goal on track to meet the target well ahead of time. Agriculture exports however, have shown little growth.

What this means

This data measures the current dollar value of Nova Scotia seafood and agricultural products that are exported to other countries (not including shipments to other provinces). Some of the recent growth has been due in part to strong lobster prices and to a lesser extent on volume increases.
