The satellite oceanography reveals the rolls on Potential Fishing Zone (PFZ) advisories in India is limited by the availability of the satellite data during the cloudy days and for the cloudy areas, because of the inability of the passive sensors to pass through the clouds. However, there is a huge demand from the fishermen community to provide PFZ advisories on cloudy days / monsoon period also as the period corresponds to the peak fishing season. Keeping in view of the demand and availability of the optimally interpolated merged product from Altimetry, it is proposed to utilize 4 km SST product obtained from the AVHRR. In view of this, a comparative analysis has been carried out on the feasibility of utilization of the Altimetry product for identification of PFZ Advisories. The analysis is carried out the synergize study on existing in AVHRR SST product are really matching with the high resolution EKE and SSHA products derived from Altimetry. From the analysis it was found that the Altimetry product is suitable for identifying cold core generation of waters for PFZ advisories with certain limitations. Also persistence of the ocean color environmental variables is cross-verified with catch weight observed from In-situ observation. The overall analysis derived from ocean color and altimetry products for delineating potential fishing zones enhance flawless information for future research.
