reef fish, pine logs, crustaceans, mangrove, fishing industry

Severe deforestation has limited the value of forest products to Haitiís economy. Some pine logs are harvested from mountaintops, and mahogany, oak, cedar, and mangrove supply a small amount of forest products. A lack of modern equipment hinders the fishing industry. Catches of reef fish and crustaceans are only sufficient to supply local markets. Mining has never been an important industry because the deposits that exist are not commercially viable. Building materials, such as limestone and clay, and salt and copper are among the few products mined in Haiti.
