A study was conducted during 1971 and 1972 to determine ways in which remotely sensed data from spacecraft and aircraft could be used to assist fishery technology in tropical tuna and Alaska salmon fisheries. The project assessed the operational characteristics of each of these fisheries including the history, biology, vessels and gear, search and catch methods, economics, and research and regulatory aspects. A similar assessment was made of the state-of-the-art of remote sensors with application to fishery oceanography. A series of field verification visits were made to each fishery and for remote sensing. Author
