Tony Long

Tony Long became the first permanent CEO of Global Fishing Watch in September, 2017. He joined the organization shortly after we were officially incorporated as an independent NGO (in April, 2017). Tony came to Global Fishing Watch from the Pew Charitable Trusts where he directed Pew’s End Illegal Fishing Program and played a key role in the development of the Eyes on the Seas project. He has a strong background in non-profit program development and fundraising and a deep understanding of vessel tracking, IUU and related technologies.

Through collaborative partnerships, we support innovative projects that protect vulnerable wildlife from extinction, while restoring balance to threatened ecosystems and communities. Our work is divided into six main program areas – Wildlands Conservation, Oceans Conservation, Climate Change, Indigenous Rights, Transforming California, and Innovative Solutions.
