Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies have become a popular application in order to improve the sustainability of smart fisheries. Although the ultimate objective of AI applications is often described as sustainability, there is yet no proof as to how AI contributes to sustainable fisheries. The proper monitoring of the longitudinal delivery of different human impacts on activities such as fishing is a major concern today in aquatic conservation. The term "potential fishing zone" (PFZ) refers to an anticipated area of any given sea where a variety of fish may congregate for some time. The forecast is made based on factors including the sea surface temperature (SST) and the sea superficial chlorophyll attentiveness. Fishing advisories are a by-product of the identification procedure. Normalization and preliminary processing are applied to these unprocessed data. The gathered attributes, together with financial derivatives and geometric features, are then utilised to make projections about IPFZ's Technique are used to get the final determination (CECT). In this study, we offer a technique for identifying and mapping fishing activity. Experimentations are performed to validate the efficacy of the CECT method in comparison to machine learning (ML) and deep learning (DL) methods across a variety of measurable parameters. Results showed that CECT obtained 94% accuracy, while Convolutional neural network only managed 92% accuracy on 80% training data and 20% testing data.
