Tony Long directs The Pew Charitable Trusts’ work to end illegal fishing, and initiated Pew’s partnership with the Satellite Applications Catapult on Project Eyes on the Seas, a groundbreaking maritime monitoring system. Tony joined Pew in 2012 after 27 years in the British Royal Navy, where he reached the rank of commander. He served on the First Sea Lord’s strategy team, providing defense planning and policy support to the head of the Navy. Tony has focused on maritime surveillance for much of his career, from helicopter operations to commanding a mine-hunter (HMS Blyth) and a frigate (HMS Monmouth). He has spent extensive time at sea, including patrols in the Atlantic Ocean, Persian Gulf, Indian Ocean, and the Far East. He directs a globally distributed team with projects on international policy, maritime enforcement and technology, all geared toward ending illegal fishing across the world’s oceans.
