After 11 years in Alaska working on fisheries, natural resource, and Native subsistence and land issues as well as the last 33+ years in support of Members of the U.S. Congress and their staff on ocean policy, fisheries, marine mammals, Alaska lands, endangered species, and polar issues, I plan on retiring from federal government service on May 1, 2013.
I am deeply indebted and owe you all sincere gratitude for the many years of collegial sharing of your expertise and wisdom, as I could not have done nearly as much as I feel I have accomplished without your help. May your careers be as rewarding as I feel mine has been. Although time may not permit and my expectations may be unrealistic, I hope I have the opportunity to thank each of you personally. I apologize if you receive more than one copy of this e-mail; that only indicates I value you in multiple areas of expertise and have saved your contact information thus.
Although I will be retiring from federal government service, I intend to write, volunteer my expertise and advice, and generally remain active in U.S. and international fisheries policy and ocean affairs in any way I find I can be helpful. Initially, my wife, Lori, and I will be splitting time between our home in Reston, VA, and a wonderful lake community home we've purchased in East Berlin, PA. My dad is still doing well at 94, so I only hope I have nearly as many good years remaining.
After retirement, I can be contacted at ebuck43 at aol.com. I hope we can remain in touch.
Peace, love, and ice cream,
Gene Buck, specialist in natural resources policy
Resources, Science, and Industry Division
