Uta Bellion directs Pew's European marine work, which aims to strengthen the role of the European Union in stopping global overfishing and degradation of the world's oceans. She supports campaigns to end illegal, unreported, and unregulated fishing; reduce bycatch and discards; and advocate for science-based catch limits to end overfishing and ensure speedy recovery of depleted fish stocks.
