Fish Fry Protecting Devices. The project aims at meeting the market demand for innovative products that could assist the fishing industry to apply large-scale fish protection programs using relatively inexpensive materials and techniques.

The idea is to use nets, which is an inexpensive material, already used in the fishing industry, and construct a series of Fish Aggregating Devices (FADs).

The project is a collaboration between HCMR, the University of Crete and the companies DIOPAS S.A. and LAMANS S.A.
