Deck TypeDecked vesselsOverviewThese vessels are large sized long liners working mostly on distant waters. They have the same general characteristics mentioned for long liner.Vessel ClassLengthover 45 m  (LOA) PowerallTonnageall  (GRT in register tons) Deck ArrangementThe wheelhouse is generally placed aft. In typical arrangements the gear is hauled from the bow or from the side with a mechanical or hydraulic line hauler and the lines are set over the stern.Catch Handling and Processing EquipmentProcessed fishEquipmentDeck EquipmentSeveral automatic systems are used on large sized vessels to bait the hooks and to shoot and haul the lines, e.g. baiter, hydraulic hauler, hook and line storage equipment and, containers or tanks for storing the bait. The equipment of the factories ensure high quality products. Quality control take also place on board. The vessels have large buffer capacity (caught fish can be stored in RSW tanks), therefore piks in the catches can also be used.Fish Detection EquipmentTypical fish detection equipment of large long liners includes echosounder and sonarCatch Handling and Processing EquipmentFactory long liners are generally equipped with processing plant including mechanical gutting and filleting equipment with accompanying freezing installation, fish oil, fish meal and sometimes canning plants.Fishing Gear Longlines (nei).
