Gov. Sean Parnell has chosen Fairbanks resident Reed Morisky to replace Bill Brown on the state Board of Fisheries.
Brown, of Juneau, abruptly resigned mid-term last month.
A press release Parnell's office issued tonight said in part:
Morisky's appointment is effective immediately, expires June 30, 2014, and is subject to confirmation by the Alaska Legislature.
Morisky, of Fairbanks, is the owner and operator of Wilderness Fishing, a sport fishing guide service based in Fairbanks and Nenana. He currently works as a project manager for the University of Alaska Fairbanks Division of Design and Construction. He is a past member of the Sport Fishing Guide Services Task Force, Summit Drive Service Area Commission and the Steese Area Volunteer Fire Department board of directors. Morisky serves as a current member for the Fairbanks Convention and Visitors Bureau, Trout Unlimited, Alaska Outdoor Council and the National Rifle Association.
