    Although Spanish longline has been used in CCAMLR fisheries for a number of years, detailed information on the fishing gear and the procedures for setting/hauling has not been described in detail and is not currently included the CCAMLR gear library. In order to contribute to the assessment of potential adverse impact on VMEs and on incidental mortality of seabirds by Spanish longlines, this paper presents a gear configuration and procedures of setting/hauling for Spanish longline based on that used by the Korean flagged vessels.
