Tough conditions and big depths
The problem with big prey using the line as a buffet is also known from other
fisheries, like the Greenland halibut fishery in Vesterålen in Northern Norway. This
is one of the locations where Sago Extreme has been tested.

It has proven to work properly. It was a great relief to us the first time we got some
good video footage from test runs - the Sago Extreme slipped well along the
seabed. The fish was brought in and preserved as desired. In the autumn, it is
ready for full-scale testing in the Southern Ocean, they say.

Under such extreme conditions as in the Southern Ocean, it is important to have
workable solutions and extensive experience and knowledge about the bottom
conditions. Sago Extreme has been developed with the help of Western-style
innovation and perseverance.

One of the challenges for the innovators has been to recreate a real-life situation
during testing in Norway, as well as finding camera equipment capable of
documenting what's going on in the deep.
The challenge is that deepwater line fishing in the Southern Ocean takes place in
rough conditions and at 1200-2000 meters of sea depth, which makes testing and
documentation difficult. There are very few good video shots from these depths.

Through the test phases of Sago Extreme here in Norway, we have used different
camera systems. In the end, we found a solution that gave us good recordings,
but it limited the testing to take place at only a few hundred meters’ depth,
explains Linn Solveig.

A family business
Sago Solutions is a family business where the two sisters now both work full time.
It was their father, Omar Sørvik, who saw the need for a physical barrier to protect
the catch against the whale. While working as a fisherman in the Southern Ocean,
he experienced the problems with whales eating from the line.
We have the advantage that the solution was made by our father, who has 40
years’ experience as a fisherman and chief advisor on fishing boats in different
parts of the world. His experience enabled us to take into account many
contingencies and interactions with other systems on board.
Omar designed the solution in 2008 and got it patented the following year.
Because he was so busy, the solution was put aside until we discovered that he
was still paying for the patent rights. At that time we thought that we should
develop it further. We had heard about Sago Extreme for several years and knew
that Dad would not patent it unless there was something special about it.

Sago Solutions started in 2016 as a research project with support from Innovation
Norway. The two sisters have quite different backgrounds; Linn Solveig has a long
experience from the shipbuilding industry and is a trained industrial planner and
technical engineer, while Ingunn Elise has a background from marketing and

It is a privilege to work with the family in this way.
