HALIEUS

Dear B-Greek,
In Matthew 4:18-22, scripture identifies Andrew, Peter, James and John as
fishermen (or fishers) translated from the word HALIEUS, which comes
directly from the HALS, the word for salt.  Was there any other word used at
the time to identify fishermen, one that might actually have included the
term "fish"?  Or is the term used in scripture the one most commonly used at
the time it was recorded?
           Thanks,
             Karen W. Beaulieu
