February 3, 2007, Juneau, Alaska - Governor Sarah Palin today appointed Denby Lloyd as Commissioner of the Department of Fish and Game.
The Governor received a single name for the position from the Joint Board of the Alaska Board of Fisheries and the Alaska Board of Game. Denby Lloyd was unanimously approved by both boards Wednesday night. The Governor appointed Lloyd as Acting Commissioner on December 26, 2006.
“I want to thank the members of the Joint Board for their service and I congratulate Denby for receiving such a strong showing of support,” said Governor Palin. “There were three strong candidates – all wonderful Alaskans who would serve the state well. Denby has ably led the department for the past month while working through the board process, and I’m so happy to reaffirm him as Commissioner of Fish and Game. Now we can get on with the important business of managing and developing Alaska’s fish and wildlife.”
Lloyd received a Master of Science in Biological Oceanography from the University of Alaska, Fairbanks. He has worked in numerous positions at the Alaska Department of Fish and Game and other resource management agencies in Alaska since 1974, including as Director of the Division of Commercial Fisheries and Regional Finfish Supervisor. Lloyd will be a member of the North Pacific Fishery Management Council where many important decisions are made that affect Alaska commercial and sport fishermen. He is a certified fisheries scientist with the American Fisheries Society and an associate with the American Institute of Fishery Research Biologists.
He will join several other department commissioners in a swearing-in ceremony next week in Juneau.
