San Diego-based Training Resources Limited, Inc (TRLMI), the largest privately held provider of maritime training in the Western United States, purchased the on line titles from the Philips Publishing Group and officially took ownership of the digital publications last September.
“We are in the business of providing mariners with knowledge through education,” said TRLMI CEO Dave Abrams. “Fishermen’s News and Pacific Maritime Magazine have been providing knowledge through current industry news for decades, so they are a natural extension of our existing business. The titles give us the ability to provide mariners and commercial fishermen with advocacy and news about the industries we train them for. After 6 months of learning the markets, we are ready to bring the print editions back to life.”
President of Philips Publishing Group Peter Philips and his brother Chris Philips, who served as publications’ managing editor, are delighted that TRLMI will be continuing publishing these magazines.
“Fishermen’s News and Pacific Maritime Magazine are the most widely circulated and highly regarding industry titles on the Pacific Coast,” he said. “I can’t think of a better successor to Philips Publishing than a business involved in the education of mariners.”
