Update 15th November 2017

Wednesday 15th, marked the 21st annual deployment in what is known as the “Recoverable FADs at the Rottnest Trench Program”. Originally initiated by PGFC in 1997 following many years of deploying FADs which were not recoverable, the knowledge gained in construction, mooring gear design, deployment and recovery techniques has led to excellent durability and an economical asset enjoyed by thousands of metropolitan game fishers.

The newly sponsored Fibrelite Boats FAD is of polyethylene construction and is being trialled for its longevity and fish raising potential. All FADs are again fitted with satellite trackers and red radar reflectors.
