But a new congressional analysis of the Bigeye project identifies many serious problems with the weapon, several of which it says "appear to be intractable.
As a "binary" weapon, each Bigeye bomb would store two chemicals separately until the weapon was released from its launcher and en route to its target.
According to unclassified portions of the new report, released last week by the General Accounting Office (GAO), the congressional watchdog agency, the 14-year, on-again-off-again Bigeye program has not yet demonstrated that these binary weapons will achieve their design potency, will function as expected or can be delivered reliably and safely.
Bigeyes were designed to exclude unwanted fish bycatch from trawls during fishing for banana prawns.
Preliminary feedback from the fishery indicates that about 30% of the banana-prawn fleet installed and used a Bigeye BRD during the 1998 fishing season.
