Remote Sensing Applications in Locating Fishing Ground at Sea

"Remote Sensing technology is useful for forecasting fishing grounds to reduce the inefficiency of fishing activities, e.g. time travelling to/from fishing ground, energy consumed for fishing operation by the vessel.” Haryo, 2016

Ocean color remote sensing can be used to measure several oceanographic parameters over the ocean surface. Chlorophyll-a concentration and Sea Surface Temperature (SST) are the important oceanographic parameters which allow the forecast of fish distribution and the Potential Fishing Ground (PFG). If we can determine the optimum condition of the target species, we could increase the chance for locating the target fish and reduce fishing operation cost.

Conceptual framework

  • Satellites sensors can measured oceanographic parameters at the ocean surface
  • Scientists use in-situ and satellites data to analyses in the model to forecast the potential fishing ground (PFG) and validate with the catch from fishers
  • Dissemination the results with fishers and societal needs

There are several countries in the world that have research to forecast and dissemination of PFG of the economically important species of their country to the fishers and the societal needs.

“A reliable and fast forecast on the potential fishing grounds may help the user (fishers) in decision making and reduction in searching time, which will increase catch with lesser effort.” Suhartono et al., 2015
