Huw Thomas manages market engagement for Pew’s ending illegal fishing project, focusing on building a sustainable future for the world’s oceans by preventing illegal, unreported, and unregulated (IUU) fishing. Thomas works to develop policies and practices that retail supply chains can adopt to reduce industry sales of IUU seafood.

Before joining Pew, Thomas worked as the fisheries and aquaculture manager for a leading supermarket chain in the U.K. where he developed and implemented responsible seafood sourcing policy. He was also instrumental in revamping and launching a program that certifies crew welfare standards and responsible catching practices on fishing vessels.
