    Abstract

    Anchored bamboo fish-aggregating devices (FADs) are used to catch tuna and small pelagic fish. Several hypotheses had been advanced previously to explain the association of fish with FADs (Castro et al. 2002; Fréon & Misund 1999), but the processes responsible for fish attraction and aggregation remain unknown. There is no previous research on fish behaviour related to sound near FADs (Dempster & Tarquet 2004) or actual records of sound from FADs.
