Magazine Meremees

About the magazine

Meremees is an Estonian maritime magazine published by the Estonian Maritime Academy of TalTech. The publishing of the magazine is supported by the academy, its co-partners and companies in the maritime sector.

The first issue of Meremees was published on August 8, 1989. Over 300 issues have been published already – in different formats and by several publishers, but still consistently. In 2019 the magazine celebrated its 30th publishing year.

Although there are few boating magazines for hobby-sailors in Estonia, Meremees is the only publication focusing on the topics of maritime industry on professional level. Meremees is unique due to its content that can not be read from other publications – articles of maritime politics, education and training, safety and security, environment, literature, history and industry are published in Meremees for maritime professionals and fans.
