Implementation of an ongoing FAD programme in Curaçao (Netherlands Antilles) during the period 1993-2000
In Curacao, deep-water FADs with GRP surface buoys were developed and tested. The first FAD was deployed in 1993. Up to now, a total of 5 FADs were deployed ar the following depths: 730, 685, 700, 754 and 574 metres. Chanhes were made to the surface buoy, resulting in an improved design, the MKII surface buoy.
