Reference information:
-A person who fishes using a longline.
-A vessel used for long-lining."


"What is Longlining?Longlining gets its name from the length of the lines that are used. In broad terms a longline consists of a main line to which many branch lines are attached. Each branch line has a baited hook at its end.
Longlines are especially appropriate for catching large, high quality, high value fish such as bluefin and yellowfin tunas, swordfish and Patagonian toothfish.
In the 1980s, longlining became an increasingly popular method of fishing, partly in response to the increasing demand for high-quality, high-value fish for upmarket restaurants, but also following the global ban on drift nets.
Some longliners set lines of over 100km. Attached to it are literally thousands of baited hooks. An estimated 1 billion hooks are set annually by the world's longline fleets.
Depending on the type of longline, buoys, floats and/or weights are used to position the line on the seabed or at the required depth in the water..."
