Abstract : A software program has been developed to aid in the prediction of fish location. Satellite and geophysical oceanographic databases have been assembled for the west coastal of the U.S. which are used to predict the locations of fish. A user interactive graphical interface written in Interactive Data Language, visually displays the databases and connects a series of fish rules by performing a logical and operations. The resultant bitmap is displays the intersection of the rules which are the locations of possible fish locations. The fish rules are still under in development. The software provides a real time interactive display for testing and developing an understanding of fish behavior.
