Lower entanglement risk FADs [LERFADs]

Lower entanglement risk fish aggregating devices

Fish aggregating devices where only small mesh netting is used (< 7 cm stretched mesh) and rafts are tightly wrapped with small mesh netting. The underwater structure is tightly tied into bundles (called “sausages”) so that the risk of entanglement for non‑target species is much lower.
