Map2Fish: a Fish stock service for tourism: Coastal and maritime tourism is a significant and growing sector within the Blue Economy, with fishing tourism as a niche segment that has seen an increase in popularity due to its potential for increased revenue. The Map2Fish service aims to simplify the decision-making process for fishing tourism operators and enthusiasts by providing information on pelagic fish concentration probabilities and parameters such as sea surface temperature, dissolved oxygen, chlorophyll-a concentration, water transparency, currents, and waves. This service addresses a growing economic sector and can lead to more successful fishing trips, cost minimization, and development of services for customers. Map2Fish – A fish stock service for tourism | Copernicus
