National Fisherman publication goes digital only


Just days after Pacific Fishing magazine stopped publication altogether as it searches for a new owner, National Fisherman is ending its print edition and will become online only.

The publication has been providing news about the commercial fishing industry for 78 years. Both publications are widely read by commercial fishermen in Alaska and Washington state.

“Starting in Spring 2024, National Fisherman magazine will bid farewell to its print edition. This decision is rooted in our commitment to adapting to the evolving media landscape, ensuring that we can continue providing you with top-notch coverage of daily news and insights from the commercial fishing industry,” the publication wrote.

“We want to express our deep gratitude for your unwavering support over the yearsNational Fisherman has been more than just a magazine; it’s been a community uniting people passionate about the sea, fishing, and the livelihoods it supports. Your loyalty has fueled our dedication to delivering quality content. While we say goodbye to the print edition, we’re thrilled to announce that National Fisherman will live on through our online platform at Here, you’ll discover the same in-depth analysis, breaking news, and compelling stories you’ve come to expect from us – just a click away. We invite you to join us as a member of our community with National Fisherman+,” the publication wrote.


  1. I will bet the ADN will skip the digital only phase. I bet Binkley will ride the political ad money tsunami this fall, then put the profits in his bank account and shut down the ADN.

  2. Is this the result of Mike porcarros incompetent input? 100+thousand dollars spent stupidly by dunleavy!
