Most of today’s bottom fishing longline fleet is using Mustad Autoline ™ technology. With more than 700 installations and a global service network, we offer the best guaranty of a profitable and safe longline operation.
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.
Last generation Autoline™ mostly installed on vessels of 70 feet and longer, typically aiming at setting and hauling 30-65.000 hooks daily on distant fishing grounds.
A down-scaled and more nimble solution for vessels down to 35 feet, setting and hauling 8 – 25.000 hooks in in-shore and often rocky sea-beds.
A new and flexible drum based system with easy snap on and snap off technology.
Reducing the whales interactions with the fishing gear during hauling.
We do not rest on historic glory in hook manufacturing and swivel gear development. We still work hard to invent and supply the best gear for every longline purpose.
Our ambition is to deliver common spare parts to any fishing port world wide within 7 days.
