This article reveals the FADs of one adaptive fisherman culture of the Mandar ethnic group. Rumpon is present in its function as a provider of fishing space for users of fishermen, FADs are houses where fish gather, FADs are social institutions, FADs a technology of catching aids, and FADs condition with rituals. The acquisition of data comes from reading various literatures and related research results, as well as the importance of the results of field research, with reference to the characteristics of a qualitative approach. The findings of the study show that FADs in their function cannot be compared to some fishing gear and other fishing aids. Rumpon does not have the features that make up the working mechanism like the use of other fishing gear technology that is required by the work system. FADs are also not as fish collectors, but providers of catching spaces / areas with the support of "lure" materials that are able to stimulate fish more easily approach and gather naturally.
