ANCHORAGE - A member of the Alaska Board of Fisheries has resigned after less than a year on the board.
Gov. Sean Parnell announced Saturday that he had accepted the resignation of Janet Woods of Fairbanks. She was appointed July 22 by former Gov. Sarah Palin.
The seven-member board sets seasons and other rules for Alaska waters.
Under state law, the governor must appoint a replacement within 30 days of the vacancy. The appointee must be confirmed by the Legislature and serves out the balance of the term.
