Best Answer

Narragansett Bay in Rhode Island was strategically located in relation to the New England, Middle, and Southern colonies. Hence, maritime trade became an important industry to colonial Rhode Island. Shipbuilding was the first major industry in the area. Fishing was also important to the economy of the colony.
