AbstractThis report details experiments conducted on an IMD developed fish cage design. The purpose of the study was to investigate design features which are, or may be, incorporated into cage designs. These features included cylindrical floats, an articulated deck, a lower net ring, motion damping, and various mooring attachment points. The experiments assessed the response of the system to regular waves for different mooring configurations and wave directions and included theeffect of joining multiple cage units. The objectives of the program were to quantify the wave induced motions of the articulated flotation collar, to measure the wave induced motions of a lower shape retaining ring, and to determine the effects of some alternate mooring configurations on the motions of the collar and the ring.
