Fish aggregation devices (FADs) are extensively used in tuna fisheries in the Philippines and Indonesia. FADs increase the efficiency of fishing activities and may lead to an increase in fishing pressure on tuna stocks and the pelagic ecosystem. The objectives of this study is to identify factors that influence the fisher’s decision making in deploying FADs and how this affects the fisheries spatial effort allocation and how it impacts juvenile oceanic tuna stocks.
