Massachusetts also has many natural resources. These include stone, lumber, fish, and more. Fish is one of the most common natural resources found in Massachusetts. However, the fishing industry has grown smaller over time because there was too much fishing in Massachusetts, which reduced the number of fish in the nearby ocean. Because of this, some of the restaurants in Massachusetts started to depend on other countries to supply fish for them to cook. To see where some of the natural resources are found, see the map below.
