Application of remote sensing in fisheries
The remote sensing techniques is used to study the distribution of fish in relation with the oceanic phenomena such as sea surface temperature (SST) and ocean color (phytoplankton). The pelagic fishing data were analysed from May 1997 to August 1998. The satellite data from NOAA AVHRR (SST) and SeaWiFS (phytoplankton) were also analysed. The results show that a lot of pelagic fish were caught in the warm water fronts as well as in the area of high density of phytoplankton. Further analyses should be made to come out with the firmer conclusion.
