Mixed Catch 

lincIn Mixed Catch, NF Senior Editor Linc Bedrosian spotlights a wide range of commercial fishing-related news items from coast to coast.

Never let it be said fishermen don't recycle. And if doing so helps educate the general public about the U.S. commercial fishing industry, then so much the better.

Allow me to pass along one of our reader's ideas for spreading the gospel to the general public. In an e-mail sent to Hoyt Childers, our Gulf/South Atlantic bureau chief, a reader suggests that NF subscribers leave their used issues of the magazine at local libraries for the general public to read.

Hoyt thought it was a good idea and forwarded it along to us, and I'm passing it along to you. In fact, Hoyt added that he leaves copies of the magazine in doctors and dentists offices, too.

These days in our high tech society, lots of folks spend time text messaging on their cell phones, sharing their thoughts via MySpace or Facebook pages (or is that MyFace and Spacebook?), tweeting away on Twitter or, er, blogging on Web pages. But going old school and simply passing on copies of the magazine to folks that wouldn't ordinarily have access to it — as well as the insight about commercial fishing contained within it — is a great idea, too. Any ideas that raise commercial fishing's profile in the eyes of the general public are good ones. NF Nation, keep them coming!
