Let's start with what the blockade of the Boston Harbor is. The blockade of Boston Harbor is a law made by the parliament. The blockade of the Boston Harbor is one of The Coercive (Intolerable) Acts. The Coercive Acts was mainly caused by the Boston Tea Party. The Boston Tea Party is when 30 - 130 colonists dressed up as Indians and protested the tea taxes from the Townshend Acts. The colonists dumped 46 tons into the water. All because this happened the parliament put a Coercive Act.

Britain's blockade of the Boston Harbor affected the trade in Boston by isolating shipments from the Boston Harbor. Boston was now only relying on merchant trades to not perish. Merchant trades can not be fully relied on therefore it hurt Boston greatly.
