Deep-water fisheries in the Northeast Atlantic originated as artisanal fisheries, and primarily use fixed gear such as longlines. During the late-1960s and 1970s, exploitation of deep-water species expanded into oceanic areas as vessels explored new offshore grounds using highly mechanized longline and trawl gear. In this paper we review most of the deep-water fisheries conducted in the Northeast Atlantic in slope waters greater than 400 m by summarizing historical developments and describing current trends.
