From the Editor: Untangling the Web

By Mark Nero, Managing Editor

Did you know that for many years, Pacific Maritime has had two separate websites where its content is posted?

First, there’s been the “main” or “regular” Pacific Maritime website,, which contains the articles that appear in the print edition of the magazine.

Then there has also been Pacific Maritime Magazine Online (, where certain content has been traditionally posted, such as articles that are generated for our weekly Pacific Maritime newsletter.

The reason I point this out is that the two have become one: all new news content that we post on the internet is now appearing exclusively on the website.

As you may have noticed if you’re a regular visitor to either or both sites, the transition was underway for quite a while, but is now complete. If you go to the “main” site, you’ll see that all the stories from the weekly newsletter began appearing there in early August, and if you visit the PMM Online News site, you’ll see that new content hasn’t been posted there in about a month.

Just to be clear, for the time being, all the content that’s still on the PMM Online site will remain there, but at some point, the site may be discontinued. And FYI, a similar transition has already taken place with our sister publication, Fishermen’s News.

These consolidations, 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.

It’s just one example of the ways that we at Maritime Publishing continuously strive to improve how we serve our readers and subscribers. An additional example of this is the ability to find previous issues of the magazine online, which is another recent development.

If you go to the “main” sites for both PMM and FN, you’ll find the addition of digital versions of previous issues of the magazine. At present, you can find all articles from the April/May, June/July and August 2021 issues of each magazine by going to or and clicking on the “Issues” tab under the logo on the left side of the home page.

The hope is that eventually, all issues of both magazines printed by Maritime Publishing will be available in digital form on the magazines’ official websites. Again, it’s another way in which endeavor to appease our loyal readership.

Thanks for reading.
