Jeff Regnart is stepping down as the state's commercial fisheries director, effective Oct. 2.
That's according to a note sent on behalf of Commissioner Sam Cotten to Alaska Department of Fish and Game employees.
"Jeff has done an exceptional job serving the division, the department and the state in many capacities for over two decades," the note said. "We hate to see him go, but also understand that personal reasons will take him outside the state."
Regnart was appointed commercial fisheries director in February 2011 during the Parnell administration.
