Suresh, V.R. (2000) Floating islands: a unique fish aggregating method. Naga, the ICLARM Quarterly, 23(1), pp. 11-13.
A fish aggregating device made of aquatic weeds and grass (Phoom) is used in Loktak lake in the northeastern region of India. It has been used successfully in this very productive fishery for centuries. Today, the fishery itself is under pressure from overexploitation, soil erosion leading to siltation and a hydroelectric project that has blocked the migratory route of the fish that used the lake as a breeding ground.
