The device has many advantages such as using fossil fuels, not causing any waste in nature and cleaning without harming any sea bed creatures.
The original size of the device was designed as 10x10 meters which can also serve as a fishing platform. The device floats stably on water and will not be affected by the waves; these features make the device suitable for line-fishing.
