From the Editor: Untangling the Web

By Mark Nero, Managing Editor

Did you know that for many years, Fishermen’s News has had two separate websites on which its content is hosted?

There’s Fishermen’s News Online ( where certain content is posted, such as articles that are generated for our weekly Fishermen’s News newsletter as well as the editorial you’re reading right now.

Then there’s the “main” or “regular” Fishermen’s News website (, which hosts the content that appears in the print edition of the magazine.

The reason I point this out is that at some point in the not-to-distant future, the two shall become one, and all content will appear on the main site.

The transition is actually already underway, although there’s still quite a road ahead before it’s complete. Currently, if you go to the “main” site, you’ll see that some of the stories from the weekly newsletter have started cropping up there.

Also new to the site is the addition of digital versions of previous issues of the magazine. Currently, you can find all articles from the April/May and June/July issues by going to the site and clicking on the “Issues” tab under the logo on the left side of the home page.

To be clear, for the time being, newsletter content will appear on both sites. But the plan is to eventually migrate everything over to the main site and discontinue using the Blogger site.

This consolidation, we hope, will make things easier for you as a reader, as all the magazine and newsletter content will be all under one roof, so to speak, and you won’t have to search multiple websites to find it.

The process is ongoing and is expected to last several more months, but I’ll update you once the migration is nearing completion. In the meantime, please continue to visit both sites to view the content that our hardworking team of professionals is continuously generating.
