Remote Sensing technology is useful for forecasting fishing grounds to reduce the inefficiency of fishing activities, e.g. time traveling to/from fishing ground, energy consume for fishing operation by the vessel.

Ocean color remote sensing can be used to measure several oceanographic parameter 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.
