ROFFS™ in the News – JPSS Data Aids Bluefin Tuna Research
Originally published: October 23, 2015 | Article courtesy:

Did you know that satellite data products from the Joint Polar Satellite System (JPSS) Program are helping scientists study Atlantic bluefin tuna larval ecology? NOAA’s National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) uses satellite observations such as topography, sea surface temperature, and ocean color in their studies of highly migratory fish species like the bluefin tuna. Bluefin tuna is one of the most highly evolved fish species and is in danger of overfishing. Prized as sushi, one bluefin tuna can sell for tens of thousands of dollars.

Satellite data has helped researchers gain a better understanding of the migratory patterns of the bluefin tuna. This information assists researchers in understanding the spawning patterns and life cycle, and is used to formulate policies to help prevent overfishing. JPSS data products are an important asset to monitoring and protecting the oceans’ ecosystem and global economy by providing timely and high quality data for decision support through significant technological and scientific advances.

NMFS participated in two consecutive 4-year studies in the Gulf of Mexico and Northern Caribbean focusing on the larval ecology of the Atlantic bluefin tuna, in relation to environmental conditions and climate.

Letter to the Editor: Important Climate Variability and Fisheries Workshop – Setting Science Priorities for the Gulf of Mexico, South Atlantic, and Caribbean Regions

Dear Editor:

This note is to inform you that Roffer’s Ocean Fishing Forecasting Service, Inc. partnered with SECOORA, NOAA NMFS, NASA and GCOOS and held an important workshop entitled “Climate Variability and Fisheries Workshop: Setting Science Priorities for the Gulf of Mexico, South Atlantic, and Caribbean Region.” This workshop was held on St. Petersburg Beach, FL October 26-28, 2015 and approximately 55 people participated from government (federal and state), academia (public and private) and private industry (for profit and not for profit). While most of the participants were from the South Atlantic, Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean regions, there were others from the northeast and middle Atlantic regions as well. These participants formed a group of experts from fishery management councils, federal and state fisheries and climate entities, academia and private industry scientists along with fishing industries representatives, and non-governmental organizations.
