Longlines are set horizontally either on the ocean floor (demersal longlines) or near the surface of the water (pelagic longlines).
Longlines can be tens of kilometres long and carry thousands of hooks. Baited hooks are attached to the longline by short lines called snoods that hang off the mainline.
