See performance and material standards at § 679.24(e)(4)(iii).
2 Single Streamer Line: Used during deployment of hook-and-line gear to prevent birds from taking hooks. The streamer line consists of three components: a length of line, streamers attached along a portion of the length and one or more float devices at the terminal end. See performance and material standards at § 679.24(e)(4)(ii).
3 Single Streamer Line, used with Snap Gear: Used during the deployment of snap gear to prevent birds from taking hooks.
