    Abstract

    Remote sensing has much to offer to the cage aquaculture industry. First, it is helpful in the choice of sites for development of cage culture. Here, the opposing requirements of dispersion of waste products and shelter for the cages have to be balanced. The ability of remote sensing to deliver spatially-extensive data at high resolution is important, especially when complemented by numerical modelling. The most favourable period for cage deployments of less than one year can also be assessed from the seasonal wind field. Once the sites are selected, remote sensing continues to be beneficial in operational culture by providing early indications of the advent of water masses that are potentially antagonistic, either because of their physical properties or their microflora. Such warning gives producers the option to harvest their fish early and thereby minimize potential losses.
