Midwater Trawls Designing


Icelandic fisheries reached a turning point in 1989 following changes in the Icelandic quota system. Freezer trawler operators were forced to target species which were not regulated by quotas. Hampidjan took part in this drive by designing the Gloria® midwater trawl. The first vessels set off in April 1989 in search of oceanic redfish, which Russian trawlers were known to catch with mid-water trawls in the Irminger Sea, Southwest of Iceland.

Gloria® Midwater Trawls:

  • Gloria® High-Opening Trawl
  • Gloria® High-Flow Trawl
  • Gloria® High-Speed Trawl
  • Gloria® Long-Wing Trawl
  • Gloria® Wide-Body Trawl


The Gloria® Midwater Trawls use the advances of the HELIX Self-Spreading Technology.
