SPRING is here and the NSW DPI is gearing up fish aggregating devices (FADs) for deployment along the NSW coast.
So far, NSW DPI FAD installations have kicked-off on the far north coast between Tweed Heads and Coffs Harbour. All 30 FADs will progressively be deployed down the coast, finishing at Eden in early November – weather permitting.
Satellite images show water as warm as 22°C lurking just offshore right along the NSW North Coast. This bodes well for a productive season for dolphinfish as well as other pelagics such as marlin and tuna.
