The Fremantle Sailing Club FAD lies about 51.4 km (27.8 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 Fremantle Sailing Club FAD the water depth ranges from about 250 to 214 metres deep (about 117 to 137 fathoms / 701 to 822 feet).
