Juneau man takes executive role with United Fishermen of Alaska

Scott Kelley has a new title and job.

A Juneau man is making the move to Alaska’s statewide commercial fishing trade association.

Scott Kelley was named the new executive administrator of the United Fishermen of Alaska, effective in June, according to a press release Tuesday.

Kelley is the former director of Commercial Fisheries for the Alaska Department of Fish and Game. He is replacing current executive administrator Mark Vinsel, who is retiring.

“Scott’s immense knowledge of commercial fisheries in Alaska is well-respected and his relationship with commercial fishermen is extremely valuable,” UFA Executive Director Frances Leah said in a release. “We are very lucky to have him join our organization.”

UFA is the statewide commercial fishing umbrella association, representing 35 member organizations from fisheries throughout Alaska and its offshore waters.
