Subject: Sister entrepreneurs nominated for Nor-Fishings Innovation Award (1)


A newly developed catch system for longline fishery is presented for the first time
during this year's Nor-Fishing. Fisheries Minister Per Sandberg, will hand out the
Innovation Award on the first day of the fair, Tuesday 21 August.

Whales who feed on the fish on line during line hauling are a major problem that
threatens the sustainability in parts of the industry. In particular, the sperm whale
and killer whales can in some cases take a large part of the catch.

Like a buffet for the whale
We are in close contact with both the fishing fleet and the research community,
which reports that up to three quarters of the catch disappear in some vulnerable
areas. This is a serious challenge in itself, and it brings with it many other
problems," says entrepreneur Ingunn Elise Sørvik.

Patagonian toothfish is a popular food fish, which is described as a cross between
halibut and monkfish. It can be up to 2 meters long and can weigh up to 160 kilos.
The toothfish can be up to 50 years old.

In addition to the financial losses, this also generates environmental challenges.
By feeding on the line, whales get access to large amounts of food without active
hunting. Toothfish is not part of the killer whale's natural menu, as they live at
different depths.

The fishing fleets also use, of course, longer time to land the quotas. When such a
large part of the catch disappears, it is a challenge to keep the fishing sustainable.
Longer sea time results in more emissions, and it is necessary to extract larger
quantities of fish in order to achieve the original quota, concludes co-founder Linn
Solveig Sørvik.

The "berry picker" that protects the catch
Sago Extreme is a larger aluminium structure that protects the fish on the line.
Each Sago Extreme goes a certain distance on the rope before it meets a stop
and follows the rope up to the surface. It is then lifted on board by means of a

The aluminium structure is attached to the line, so when starting the haul, the rope
is lifted from the seabed, and the Sago Extreme will move as a zipline where the
catch goes through and becomes detached from the hook and collected already
along the bottom.

– Some have previously described the principle as a berry picker. We are currently
working on an animation film to show how the equipment works in practice. This
will be ready in time for Nor-Fishing, the Sørvik sisters add.

By-catch and undersized fish escape through custom openings in the structure
and the Sago Extreme can be dimensioned to different fisheries.

The problem is known in the industry, and different approaches have been tried in
the past, but whales are intelligent animals and it has not been possible to find a
permanent solution. It is important for practically oriented fishermen that the
solution actually works during fishing, and Sago Extreme does, the entrepreneurs
