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.
Autoline™ is, besides being a system developed by Mustad, also an established general term signifying all deep-sea longline vessels.
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!
