United Fishermen of Alaska, the state's biggest commercial fishing trade group, has two new board members.

Ninilchik setnetter Cheryl Sutton and Gerry Merrigan, who works for Petersburg longline company Prowler Fisheries, were elected to replace Lindsey Bloom, a Bristol Bay salmon gillnetter, and herring seiner Chip Treinen of Anchorage.

UFA also announced today that Joe Childers will continue as president of the organization, and that past president Bob Thorstenson Jr. has been elected marketing chairman.
