Andrew Clayton directs The Pew Charitable Trusts’ project to end overfishing in North-Western Europe using science-based policy development and advocacy. Clayton joined Pew in 2014 to lead Pew's efforts in the United Kingdom to end overfishing. In doing so, he represented Pew in the regional bodies set up under the European Union’s Common Fisheries Policy to restore EU fish stocks.

Before joining Pew, Clayton gained extensive experience in fisheries management working in the UK Department for Environment, Food, and Rural Affairs. During his 17 years in government, he held a variety of positions dealing with EU environmental, fisheries, and agricultural policy, in which he was responsible for developing UK policy, advising ministers, and working with a wide range of nongovernmental and industry organizations.
