Being a PhD student has its perks- especially when you get to study whale interactions with fisheries in Alaska. That’s right. I get paid (kind of) to study killer whales and sperm whales that depredate (steal fish) from halibut and sablefish longline fisheries across the state.

Mahi Mahi are fished by long line or drop line. Only large circle hooks are used on our lines to ensure that fish are caught alive and to protect birds and turtles from being caught in them. The setting of the line and hooks is done automatically by machine and the hauling of the line and hooks is done quickly to ensure that birds do not get caught in them.

A running trace longline system is often twice as efficient as the earlier fixed trace system.

Paul Barnes of Paul's Fishing Kites has spent over 20 years commercially longlining for snapper on New Zealands east coast and, more recently, has undertaken several fish hook efficiency research projects for the N.Z. Ministry of Fisheries.

Several years ago Paul combined his commercial fishing knowledge, with the results of the fish hook research projects, and produced the ultimate recreational longline.

Paul's Fishing Kites supplies several versions of complete ready to fish boat longlines and boat longline components which can be found at the following links.

Here are some photos and videos from the second leg of the 2012 National Marine Fisheries Service annual sablefish longline survey. We fished one station per day (around 7,200 hooks) from Dutch Harbor, AK to Kodiak, AK for about 3 weeks. We had great weather, solid fishing, and intermittent whale interactions throughout our leg.
