Longline fishing is a method of commercial fishing that involves setting a main line into the sea with baited hooks attached at intervals by means of branch lines called snoods that are connected to the main line using swivels. The length of the main line can vary from a few to many kilometers long and can contain thousands of hooks. The line is deployed and retrieved by vessels equipped with longline fishing gear.

Longline fishing is widely used for the commercial harvest of various species of pelagic and demersal fish, such as Atlantic cod, Greenlandic halibut, and haddock. This fishing method can be more selective and sustainable compared to other fishing methods, such as trawling with nets, as it targets specific species and reduces bycatch.
