As much as I search on the internet, I can’t find a story of these fishing boats that use the technique of longline fishing in the Mediterranean

The original oscillates between 9 and 12 meters in length

Uses longline fishing techniques (fishing without nets with hooks at a certain depth, with a tag for each).

Technique in use in the Mediterranean sea

Longlines are fishing gear that has been in use since time immemorial. These are single or multiple hook lines, mounted by branch on a master line that can go, for professional models, up to a hundred kilometers.

I like the looks of this model. Nicely done, especially the deck detail, it looks like a working ship.
I really like the deck "clutter" of a working boat. Not spit and polish but hands on smelly fish and fishermen without time for niceties when food on the table back home depends upon working the lines and hooks until the hold is full or you are in the wrong spot and have to change locations. . . maybe water temperature and fishing depth are creating the lack of haul.
