It is typically a bouy which floats on the surface of the water and is anchored to the sea bed.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 them and to fish attracting devices (FADs).
In the near vicinity of the Cape Sorell Waverider the water depth ranges from about 104 to 98.5 metres deep (about 53.9 to 56.8 fathoms / 323 to 341 feet).
