There has been some good news just come out regarding the FADs behind Rottnest Island in Western Australia. Thanks to Recfish, the FADs will be a year round fishing spot. In the past they used to be deployed only for a few months every summer, putting pressure on finding a calm enough day to get out there.
Recfish WA is planning on deploying 8 new FADs that will stay in year round. This means we can chase Mahi Mahi on those calm days of spring/autumn. Apparently they are a new improved design which is meant to be safer for other marine animals and be more effective in attracting pelagics.
