Namibe, Lobito, roundwood, sardines, metric tons

The rich rain forests of Cabinda and the northwest furnished 7 million cu m (236 million cu ft) of roundwood for fuel and industrial purposes in 2000. Because of the cool Benguela Current, the waters off the coast of Angola are particularly rich in marine life. Fishing has thus been a traditionally important activity; in 1997 the total catch was 72,189 metric tons, primarily mackerel and sardines. Namibe and Lobito are the principal fishing ports.
