About Fishermen’s News
Welcome to Fishermen’s News
Founded in 1945, Fishermen’s News is the oldest commercial fishing publication on the Pacific Coast.
For more than 75 years, we have been serving the commercial fishing industry from Alaska to California and Hawaii. We cover all the fisheries, from squid to salmon, and all gear types, from pots to purse seines. Each issue of Fishermen’s News includes legislative news and operations columns, information on maintenance, safety and survival at sea, and current prices for permits and IFQs.
We focus on business, legislative and policy issues as they affect the independent US West Coast, Hawaii and Alaska commercial fishing fleet.
Our magazine consistently and steadfastly advocates on behalf of these commercial fishermen.
