Theft staggers Alaska Marine Conservation Council

Anchorage police are seeking a former employee suspected of stealing $100,000 from the Alaska Marine Conservation Council.

The theft was disastrous for the Anchorage-based nonprofit organization, forcing staff furloughs and job losses, detectives say.

AMCC advocates for small-boat fishermen, coastal communities and environmental causes. Its people are respected players in fish policy debates before the North Pacific Fishery Management Council.
