What is RSS

Rich Site Summary (RSS) or as some refer to it, Real Simple Syndication, is an XML-based format for content distribution in real time.

There are a number of benefits to using RSS, including:

  • You select what news you want. RSS allows you to select the type of news and information you receive from websites.
  • Because RSS requires you to download a news reader, you aren't subscribing to e-mail lists, which can increase your risk of getting unsolicited (spam) e-mail.

Instructions on Adding a News Feed to Your Feed Reader or RSS Aggregator

  • Using your mouse, right click on the RSS feed below you would like to subscribe to.
  • The pop-up menu that appears will vary based on your web browser.
  • Internet Explorer users, select the Copy Shortcut option.
  • Users of Firefox, Netscape, Opera and other web browsers select the Copy Link Location option.
  • Launch your RSS aggregator or feed reader program and paste the copied URL into an Add New Feed window.

Detailed instructions on how to add news feeds are included in the news reader application that you choose.

When new Infoceans are issued to the Fisheries and Oceans Canada Web site, you will be alerted by your aggregator. The aggregator, an RSS news feed reader software, will advise you of recently posted issues when opened.

No personal information is required to subscribe to an RSS feed.
