This document was prepared following the implementation of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations of a project in support of marine aquaculture development in the Republic of Djibouti.

During a series of field missions undertaken by the lead author, all the necessary materials for constructing a number of hexagonal wooden cages were assembled and cages were constructed and placed in the sea. The advantages of using locally available materials and the reasonable costs and ease of construction suggest the value of replicating this experience in other environments for the development of artisanal aquaculture. The basic knowledge and instructions provided in this manual are intended for present and future workers in aquaculture development dealing with the construction of small-scale artisanal floating cage for fish farming.
