Satellite remote sensing of ocean colour provides operational information at the required resolution in time and space to be useful for the sustainable management of ocean ecosystems as well as providing information on the linkages between climate-driven changes in the marine environment and the dynamics of fish and ecosystem productivity. Ocean colour remote sensing can be used to aid spatial detection of various species as well as locating target species through the detection of hydrographic features, such as fronts. Furthermore, ocean colour remote sensing can be applied to aquaculture, providing information on water quality, transport of nutrients, sea surface temperature and the detection of harmful algal blooms (HABs). This report documents achievements using Earth observation data for fisheries and aquaculture applications......
