Forecasting Tools Point to Fishing Hotspots

Private weather forecaster WorldWinds Inc., of Slidell, Louisiana, has employed satellite-gathered oceanic data from Marshall Space Flight Center to create a service that is every fishing enthusiast's dream. The company's FishBytes system uses information about sea surface temperature and chlorophyll levels to forecast favorable conditions for certain fish populations. Transmitting the data to satellite radio subscribers, FishBytes-with about 8,500 subscribers so far-provides maps that guide anglers to the areas where they are most likely to make their favorite catch.
