Many in the area have called for her resignation, and now the head of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is stepping down. Dr. Jane Lubchenco announced her intent to resign today.

In a written statement, Lubchenco says she has decided to return to her family on the West Coast at the end of February.

Lubchenco has been the administrator of NOAA for nearly four years, signing onto the position in March of 2009.

In her letter, Lubchenco lists twenty of NOAA’s top achievements during her tenure as administrator, and at the top of the list: ending over-fishing, rebuilding depleted stocks, and returning fishing to profitability.
