Twenty-five companies were extracting peat in the Province in 2011. Most of the development is concentrated in northeast New Brunswick, mainly in the Acadian Peninsula and in the Baie-Sainte-Anne region. About 79% of the production comes from Crown lands. A list of all Crown licences and leases as well as operations that are located entirely on private land are shown in the Peat industry of New Brunswick map.
