Abstract

FADs are traditionally used by fishermen to attract and aggregate fishes closer to the shore. Such practices were based on their knowledge that fish tend to congregate over submerged structures. These objects are known to attract fish efficiently and increase the productivity of the area as they provide shelter from predators, serves as feeding grounds by providing surface area for fish food organisms and even act as suitable spawning ground by giving substratum for the attachment of eggs for many fishes.
