From Sean Cockerham in Anchorage –
Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski has hired a new fisheries adviser to replace Arne Fuglvog, who pleaded guilty in August to breaking commercial fishing laws.
Murkowski said today that Stefanie Moreland, who has been working for the Alaska Department of Fish and Game as its federal fisheries coordinator, will be her new legislative aide covering fisheries and Arctic matters.
Moreland will join Murkowski’s DC office in early November.
She previously worked for the Commercial Fisheries Entry Commission and has a bachelor’s degree from the University of Minnesota and masters’ degree in resource and applied economics from the University of Alaska Fairbanks.
