The FAD becomes effective quickly - within two weeks to a month - once plankton builds up. On the Cape Verde island of Maio, for instance, small-scale fishers reported good yields of tuna and other species just two weeks after installation. Over a 14-day period, five small-scale canoes unloaded a total of 1 600 kilos of yellowfin tuna, seerfish, dorado and mackerel scad, valued at about US$ 3 200 - a catch practically unheard of in past years. That translates into substantial income increases for local fishers.

And there are other advantages. Once installed, a FAD's location becomes known to fishers and authorities and can assist in navigation. Boats having engine trouble can paddle to the area and be assured that other boats will pass by. Some of the devices are also being equipped with a radar reflector, which will make it easier for emergency vessels to find them.

Although the effectiveness of FADs could create problems of overfishing in intensive, industrialized fishing situations, "it's not a concern with the kind of small-scale fishing that occurs in Cape Verde," says JoŽl Prado, an officer in FAO's Fishery Technology Service.

The Cape Verde project received financial support from the Government of Holland and technical advice from the National Institute for Fisheries Development in Cape Verde.
