Overview: This fishery operates over a wide bathymetric range, from 200 to 1 700 m, which has a significant influence on individual catch profiles. Norwegian vessels are involved in this fishery, but the number of vessels declined from 17 in 2001 to three in 2006. One to four Russian longliners have participated on a seasonal basis in the fishery in recent years, targeting mainly sharks on the Hatton deep-sea slopes (700–1 700 m) and other species in shallower waters. France also reports activity of one longliner targeting deep-sea species in the high seas of the North East Atlantic during 2003 and 2004.
