What is longline-caught?
Longlines are the most common type of fishing gear used to catch tuna. As the name suggests, it consists of a long line with multiple baited hooks and buoys marking each end of the line. The longline set can be suspended at any depth within the water column, depending on the target species. In the United States, fishermen are required to follow a number of strict regulations to prevent incidentally catching marine mammals, sea turtles, and birds.
