Look for the right temperature

Sea Surface Temperature Data

CATSAT’s daily high resolution Sea Surface Temperature (SST) maps help fishermen detect areas with temperature ranges preferable to their species of interest.

  • Highest definition sea temperature maps on the market

  • Sub-surface temperature down to sea bottom  and thermocline help to identify vertical fronts which can be a physical barrier for some fish species

  • Climatology based on 20 years of data designed for use with the gradient tool  to easily identify how the temperature is evolving.

  • Identify ocean structures by combining temperature , altimetry and current data  with the multi-windows tool for an even more precise picture of the fishing grounds

  • Highlight favorable fishing areas using the multi-criteria filter which automatically analyzes oceanographic data and identifies fishing grounds based on the captains experience

  • Choose the best layer for your fishing gear by displaying the water column overview with the profile tool.

Track the plankton drift

With CATSAT’s Plankton Data

Plankton is preyed on by small pelagics that bigger pelagic species prey on. CATSAT provides day-to-day high resolution plankton maps effectively guiding fishermen to large pelagic feeding grounds.

  • Highest definition plankton maps on the market

  • State-of-the-art satellite ocean color measurement, showing the day by day evolution of chlorophyll 

  • Movie mode: Track the plankton drift caused by oceanographic currents

  • Combine plankton data with our high quality altimetry and current data on screen to obtain an even more precise picture of where fish are likely to be thanks to a multi-window function

  • Highlight favourable fishing areas using the multi-criteria filter, which automatically analyzes oceanographic data and identifies fishing grounds based on the captain experience

  • Identify how the plankton concentration is evolving by mapping the variations through time with the exclusive gradient tool

Understand ocean dynamics

Sea Level Anomaly Data

CATSAT’s high resolution altimetry (SLA) makes it possible to identify eddies and frontal areas between different water masses and ocean structures, where fish are most likely to be.

  • Find fronts and eddies by combining altimetry data with sea temperature (both surface and sub-surface) and currents with the multi-windows function.

  • Protect your gear by knowing in advance the shearing current at your targeted area thanks to the current meter tool.

  • Highlight favorable fishing areas using the multi-criteria filter which helps you analyze oceanographic data and identifies fishing grounds based on the captain experience
