The Perth Game Fishing Club FAD lies about 48.7 km (26.3 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 Perth Game Fishing Club FAD the water depth ranges from about 305 to 207 metres deep (about 113 to 167 fathoms / 680 to 1000 feet).
