2020 Maloelap FAD - Maloelap, MH

Under the RMI National FAD Program, the MIMRA FAD team departed to Maloelap Atoll for the 6th FAD and last deployment of 2020.

To ensure longevity of the FAD, MIMRA highly requests that fishermen and boat operators do the following:

1) Refrain from tying boats onto the surface floats
2) Report any suspicious activities (floating of loose ropes, missing floats, vandalism etc)
3) Provide FAD Catch Data to support the continuity and longevity of this programme
4) Do not cut the ropes!
