As the most powerful line of commercialization for fish species to the USA, JAPANIES and EUROPEAN Market, longline fishing is a commercial fishing technique that is considered to be more ecologically sustainable than many other methods. This strategy utilizes a long fishing line called the main line, equipped with baited hooks called “snoods”. Numerous hooks can hang from a single line to make the process more efficient and effective. Long line fishing methods are most commonly used to capture fish such as swordfish, tuna, halibut, and many other species. Longlines can be set to hang near the surface (pelagic longline) to capture fish that live along the sea floor (demersal longline) and to capture groundfish such as halibut.
Long-lining has become a smarter way to fish and holds several advantages over processes such as trawling to yield better fish quality and environmental impact.
Handline fishing, or handlining, is a fishing technique where a single fishing line is held in the hands. It is not to be confused with handfishing. One or more fishing lures or baited hooks are attached to the line. A hook, fishing lure, or a fishing jig and many times a weight and/or a fishing float can be attached to the line. Handlining is among the oldest forms of fishing and is commonly practiced throughout the world today. The fishing bait can be still fished, trolled or jigged up and down in a series of short movements. Often handling is done close to the bottom of the body of water but can also be done near or on the surface. Ocean handlining is often used to catch groundfish and squid but other species are sometimes caught, including pelagic fish. Sea handlining is a good way to catch larger oceanic fish.
JAM SEAFOODS has sold its access of this technics to dedicate itself to fishing technics that protect the species of our oceans. Seine fishing uses a large fishing net that extends vertically into the water by attaching weights at the bottom of the net and floats along the top surface. Seiner boats are heavily equipped for seine fishing and drive in a circular motion through waters to capture species in a certain radius. In the Philippines the focus is to ensure that our oceans and environments are being respected alongside the use viable fishing practices that do not destroy the quality of both consumed fish and global waters.
There are many great advantages to using sustainability to protect our environment which is why our techniques have gone from traditional Seine fishing to more innovative and resourcefully reliable practices.
