The Hookpod is a new fisheries invention that’s small in size, big in innovation and has huge implications for saving the albatross from extinction.
The Hookpod has been designed to reduce the number of birds killed to near zero. It achieves this by enclosing the point and barb of the hook as it enters the water, making it impossible for birds to become hooked. The pod has a pressure mechanism which opens on reaching fishing depth and the baited hook is released to begin fishing.
