Hookpod has been commercially demonstrated to stop seabird bycatch on setting without impacting on target catch rates. Fishers using Hookpods commercially are reporting this to be the case in ongoing use. This development has been more than 10 years in the making and the trials and use of the Hookpod have been set against rigorous independent testing and reporting.

Today, Hookpod is accredited by Agreement on the Conservation of Albatrosses and Petrels as the best practice standalone seabird bycatch mitigation measure for surface longlining and is similarly recognised by the Western and Central Pacific Fisheries Commission, the Australian government, New Zealand government and New Zealand Department of Conservation.
