Autolining is an environmentally friendly catching method which also preserves the quality of the fish.
We in Mustad Autoline are continuously working on new and innovative solutions, so that more fish can be caught by hook and line.
The production machines for fish hooks was never patented, but kept secret by means of closed doors for 125 years. Only those few people responsible for the production were allowed entrance to the building.
The Icelandic built "Norliner" is small (10,99 m), but equipped with a Mustad SelectFish system it sets 15.000 hooks daily on the Norwegian coast.
The new technological platform permits more flexibility in gear use and fishing location, and a more cost effective and modern operation overall.
We wish owner Jan Einar Søviknes and his crew all the best in their innovative approach to longlining!
