    Abstract

    In a major effort greatly beneficial to fisherfolk in the country,Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute has joined hands with ISRO to identify and forecast Potential Fishing Zone, where there is an abundance of fish. In the first phase, CMFRI and the Space Applications Centre of ISRO have jointly launched a research project to identify, forecast and monitor PFZ in coastal and offshore waters of Tamil Nadu, a CMFRI release said here today. The 'SAMUDRA' project is aimed at helping fishermen easily locate shoals of fish witchout wasting time and fuel, it said. The collaborative research work focuses on developing and running a satellite-based ocean forecasting model to provide PFZ advisories. The project aims to develop a satellite-based numerical ocean model to forecast information about fishing locations by closely monitoring and analysing various physical changes in ocean owing to seasonal and climatic variations, high winds, rain and cyclonic conditions.
