Africans in England were forced to be brought to America as slaves
No! We don't want to go!
Who are you to disagree with our decisions?
The England ->
They were brought to places such as the England Colony where it was hard to grow crops. There were more slaves needed in the Southern colonies because of the rich soil which can produce great crops. Although it was hard and tiring they still had to keep the economy going and farm or else they would get punished. The Southern Colonies produced mainly cotton, tobacco, and rice. Other Colonies can't produce these crops because they don't have good soil.
HURRY UP AND FARM!
No, we can't farm here, it's too rocky, we need to find a better idea!
So then they thought that fishing will help them and will make money, later on, they made fishing their base of their economy
