Paper Abstract

Sea surface temperature (SST) is an important factor that affects the changes of marine fishery resources. In this paper, the characteristics of distribution and variation in sea surface temperature was retrieved in northwestern Pacific Ocean by MODIS from 2008 to 2017. The results showed that the distribution of SST in northwestern Pacific Ocean was found to be characterized by regional and seasonal changes. Annually, periodical changes in SST was found unconspicuously, and spatially, the SST high value area showed a trend of moving from high-latitude to low-latitude. In August each year, there seemed to be a temperature boundary at 40°N, and the boundary will move south in September. Finally, we analyzed the SST distribution of the two main fishing periods of Cololabis saira in August and September each year, and preliminarily explained the cause of the "fish shortage" of saury recently years in Japan. The long-term variations in SST were discussed macroscopically in this paper, and this could give a new insight into fishing industry research in the Northwest Pacific.
