Development of an underrunning system for moored longlines

Development of an underrunning system for moored longlines

Canadian Technical Report of Fisheries & Aquatic Sciences (1454): I-IV, 1-19

In response to a request received by the fishermen of Lumsden, Nfld. [Canada], for an inexpensive braking system to take monofilament longline, the Fisheries Development Branch of the Department of Fisheries and Oceans, [Canada] funded and developed an underrunning moored-longline braking system. This report describes the tests and design modifications beginning with the first prototypical unit on August 21, 1985. The report further traces the development and design assistance of Mr. Gerald Burry (St. Phillips, Nfld.) and subsequent trials. Conclusions reached have been inconclusive due to poor weather conditions during the 1985 testing period. However, continued usage of the system by Mr. Melindy has indicated that the system has commercial applications.
