Ted Stevens receives award from United Fishermen

Posted: Monday, April 27, 2009

KODIAK - Former U.S. Sen. Ted Stevens has received a lifetime achievement award from the United Fishermen of Alaska.

It was presented Thursday night at ComFish Alaska, a fisheries trade show.

Stevens was honored for his years of service to the industry including helping author the Magnuson-Stevens Act, a law that guides fishery management in waters between 3 miles and 200 miles offshore.

Stevens declined to discuss the recent dismissal of his felony corruption charges since the federal prosecutors are now under investigation. A judge last month vacated Stevens' conviction because of prosecutorial misconduct.

Stevens, the longest serving Republican in Senate history, was defeated in last fall's election just days after his conviction.
