Fisheries Tasmania FADS
« on: May 14, 2021, 02:55:20 pm »
Fish Aggregating Devices (FADs) are structures placed in the ocean to attract species such as yellowtail kingfish and tunas. In February, three FADs were trialled off the East Coast, two in Coles Bay and one near Binalong Bay. At the end of April they were retrieved to avoid interactions with migrating whales. They will be re-deployed in December along with more FADs at locations around Tasmania, including Freycinet and south east of Pirates Bay.

If you went fishing near them, please give us feedback about your experiences. If you didnít but are interested in FADs, tell us your views on future deployments:
