Welcome to the new National Fisherman website.

The whole National Fisherman staff has been working feverishly to launch this site to be able to bring you the best of the commercial fishing universe online.

Our new site allows us to feature video, photos, blogs, news stories and so much more from every coast and around the world.

We are very excited about this opportunity to share the industry's abundance of events, stories and memories and with all of you. If you've signed up for Fish eNews, then that's probably how you got to this announcement. We will be using the newsletter to send out weekly alerts about what's new on the site, including, as always, editorial from the editors of National Fisherman.

If you're not signed up for Fish eNews, then do it now, so you won't miss a beat in the fishing industry's ever-changing landscape.

This new site is mobile- and tablet-ready, which means you can get caught up easily, even when you're on the go (which you almost always are, right?).

Please take some time to explore the site, and don't hesitate to contact us with feedback.

Thank you for your time.
