Abstract: In this study three FAD types, which were being commonly used in small scale fisheries and had different attractors were tried. Attractors such as pyramid, rope and panel types were tied to static FADs. The fish species and densities attracted by them were examined. The samplings were made through visual census, trammel nets and line fishing before and after the deploying of FADs. Any significant difference was not able to be found statistically between the attractors tied to fish aggregating devices. In the result of observation and samplings before and after the deploying of FADs, while 10 fish species belong to 6 families were observed before deployment, 16 fish species belong to 11 families were determined after the deployment of the FADs.
