Fish Aggregation Devices (FADs) and Fisheries Development in Tanzania.

Abstract

FADs attract (aggregate) potentially valuable pelagic fish species including skipjack, yellowfin and bigeye tuna. This policy brief describes how a well-planned, strategically-placed FAD programme would provide an opportunity for poorer fishers, that are normally restricted in their ability to leave their home waters due to seasonally rough weather, to increase the livelihood benefits generated from exploitation of these tuna resources.
