This is key issue of global concern for the sustainable use of fisheries and aquaculture resources. Satellite remote sensing and marine-GIS for fisheries and aquaculture has been developing and an operational use is required for sustainable development and management. The international consensus to follow ecosystem-based management raises the imperative to design and implement a suite of ecological indicators with a view to detecting change in the marine ecosystem should it occur in response to perturbations, for example by climate change or by overfishing.
This Special Issue is soliciting publications on the following and related topics:
- Operational Use of Remote Sensing for Fish Harvesting
- Modeling of Habitat Suitability Index/Potential Fishing Zone
- Application of VMS (Vessel Monitoring Systems) with Satellite Remote Sensing Data for Fisheries Management.
- Application of Remote Sensing and Marine-GIS for By-Catch Solutions
- Use of Remote Sensing and Marine-GIS in Aquaculture
- Implications of Climate Change on Fisheries
- Food Security and Sustainability
- Earth Observation Satellite Data in Fisheries Models
- Applications of Remote Sensing and Numerical Modeling in the Management of Coastal Zones and Fisheries

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Remote Sensing is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
