Aquaculture becomes an important industry and associates with many targets of sustainable development goals. As the aquaculture industries go forward offshore, the design of the floating net cage must be able to withstand extreme sea conditions. One of the vulnerable parts of floating net cage is the floater, especially at the bracket. There is load transfer in the bracket from net drag force, mooring tension, and horizontal force of the wave. Thus, this study aims to analyze the bracket under current and wave using the finite element method. Hydrodynamic force is based on the Morison formula. The numerical model was validated with the data obtained from corresponding experimental and numerical tests. On the basis, using the environmental condition in Pangandaran, Indonesia, the structure is simulated globally to obtain the deformation and tension. The simulations of the fish cage consist of single and double pipes. Then, the bracket at the floater will be analyzed locally to get the deformation and stress distribution. The maximum stress occurs at the connection between the horizontal and outer pipe of the bracket.
