PETERSBURG-AK Petersburg fisherman John Jensen was confirmed to a fourth term on the Alaska Board of Fisheries Friday morning during a joint session of the legislature. The vote among the House and Senate was 50 to 9 in support of his confirmation. Southeast shellfish and finfish proposals will be up for board discussion in early 2012.
Jensen is a commercial crabber and longliner who also owns a boat rental business in Petersburg. Matt Lichtenstein spoke with Jensen shortly after Governor Sean Parnell announced his reappointment in late March.
