    Abstract

    Fish aggregating devices (FAD) are natural or artificial objects of permanent or temporary nature that are used to lure the fish. When installed in water bodies they attract and aggregate the fishes as they can be used for the purpose of shade, shelter, food and breeding ground by the fishes. Traditional FAD systems have been used by the fishermen all over the world to to facilitate easy harvest of fishes. Materials like tree branches, bamboo shoots with aquatic weeds etc, are commonly used in shallow areas of creeks and backwaters to attract and aggregate the fishes and it is variously known as acadja fishery in West Africa, Samarahs in Cambodia, Katha in Bangladesh and Padal fishing in southern India.
