New assistant area management biologist hopes to use commerical fishing background to help manage the Petersburg-Wrangell area fisheries.

WRANGELL There is a new face in the Alaska Fish and Game office in Wrangell. New Assistant Area Management Biologist Tom Kowalski comes to Wrangell after spending over 20 years as a commercial fisherman on the East Coast. After graduating from college, a year and a half ago, the Virginia Beach, Virginia, native moved to Anchorage to work as an observer for Fish and Game's ground fish program. Kowalski takes over for Scott Forbes, who left in December to pursue other career opportunities. KSTK's Tony Gorman spoke with Kowalski about his past experiences and how he will use that knowledge to help manage the Petersburg-Wrangell Area.
