The Furuno FAD lies about 46.6 km (25.2 nautical miles) off the coast of Western Australia (show Western Australia on map).
A FAD or 'fish attracting/aggregating device' is a man made structure deployed at sea. They can provide a focal point for the aggregation of certain pelagic fish species in the warmer months. In particular, Dolphinfish or Mahi Mahi (Coryphaena hippurus) are particularly well known as being attracted to FADs. FADs are typically deployed for the summer months when the water is warmer and removed over winter for maintenance. They may be redeployed in different locations in following years.
In the near vicinity of the Furuno FAD the water depth ranges from about 167 to 156 metres deep (about 85.3 to 91.1 fathoms / 512 to 547 feet).
The nearest Australian towns, villages or cities to the Furuno FAD are the metropolis of Perth (show me), the village of Rottnest Island (show me) and the city of Kwinana (show me).
