The fishing industry is becoming impatient over Gov. Angus King's delay in repla
The fishing industry is becoming impatient over Gov. Angus King's delay in replacing Robin Alden, who resigned last November as the commisssoner of the Department of Marine Resources. Acting Commissioner Penn Estabrook can serve no more than six months, and must be replaced by May 10. The most likely choice for another acting commissioner is Joe Fessenden, colonel of the Marine Patrol. A search committee reached consensus on George Lapointe, who works for the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Council, but King is reluctant to hire him because of his lack of familiarity with Maine.
