Fishermen's News is different
Our readers are a pretty independent group, but they all have the same mission: To make a good living in the commercial fishing industry while maintaining the safety of their crew and the integrity of the resource. Our readers fish up and down the coast — from California to Alaska to Hawaii — with vessels ranging from 26-foot Puget Sound gillnetters to 240-foot catcher/processors. They make the buying decisions themselves, and look to Fishermen's News for help in making those decisions.
For sixty-seven years, only Fishermen's News has consistently advocated on behalf of these commercial fishermen. We are a small, second-generation, family-run business, and our independence allows us to offer the U.S. West Coast commercial fisherman a voice. We tackle issues our corporate competitors won't touch.
Because our overhead is lower than that of our corporate competitors, we can bring you this market at a much better price-per-fisherman. We print on newsprint, and we own the building from which we publish to further keep our costs down. Those cost savings are passed on to our advertisers. Let us be your presence among these small, family-run businesses.
