Longlining is an environmentally friendly catching method which also preserves the quality of the fish.
We in Mustad are continuously working on new and innovative solutions, so that more fish can be caught by hook and line.
The fish hook production technology developed by Mathias Topp in 1877 is still the most efficient world wide.
The Minster of Trade and Industry, Mr. Trond Giske, visited Mustad Longline on Friday Sept. 2nd. The reason for the visit was Mustad Longline's nomination for the Innovation Prize which is to be handed out by the Research Council on Sept. 21st.
The Minister showed good insight in the fishing industry and the need for innovation and inspired us to future accomplishments.
