It is typically a bouy which floats on the surface of the water and is anchored to the sea bed.They can provide a focal point for the aggregation of certain pelagic fish species in the warmer months. In particular, Dolphinfish or Mahi Mahi (Coryphaena hippurus) are particularly well known as being attracted to them and to fish attracting devices (FADs).
In the near vicinity of the Cape du Couedic Waverider the water depth ranges from about 83.1 to 77.9 metres deep (about 42.6 to 45.5 fathoms / 256 to 273 feet).
