I’m trying to offer advice to some old Hawaii friends who are snaring pigs. Some factors to consider.

Pigs aren’t any bigger than 160 lbs
Preferred DOA
Snares will be in a wet/humid/potentially salt spray environment until they catch something. Rust/corrosion is a concern.

I’m thinking they can get away with 3/32 1x19 stainless cable, a midline swivel, and whatever lock out there that’s stainless. I think Newt has a stainless one. Thoughts? Should they use copper ferrules or can they get away with aluminum?

I use the Ram Power Snares Wolf Master. It's quick and effective. I hook them to an 8' 1/8" choker. I've whacked quite a few.
I like to bait them up with sour mash or hog wild using a game cam. When they get on it and no non targets in go the snares. Have taken as many as 6 with 10 snares in a night at one location. I think Meat Trapper uses one from Southern Snares com. I'm pretty sure they could make it for dispatch.

3/32" 1x19 Stainless Steel cable. is plenty big.
12/0 swivel
YES Copper ferrules. salt water air will make aluminum ferrules will just "Go away" in salt spray.when on Stainless Steel cable

Thanks Newt! Do you have your SS slim lock in 3/32?
