    Abstract

    As part of the research work, physically collected data on fish catch, water quality and biophysical parameters such as pigments, temperature, salinity, nutrients, productivity etc. will be validated with satellite-derived data. The project will focus on developing and running a satellite-based ocean forecasting model to provide fishing zone advisories. The Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute (CMFRI) has joined hands with the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) to identify areas in deep seas where fishes are found in abundance to help fishermen easily locate their catch without wasting time and fuel. The CMFRI and the Space Applications Centre (SAC) of the space agency have jointly launched a research project Samudra for identifying, forecasting and monitoring potential fishing zones (PFZ) in waters of Tamil Nadu in the first phase. The project will focus on developing and running a satellite-based ocean forecasting model to provide PFZ advisories.
