Indonesia is a maritime country with extraordinary natural resources. In maximizing the benefits of marine resources, the use of technology is needed. One of them is the Fish Go Application created by Indonesian children. It is a fish position tracking application based on a remote sensing and navigation system to help fishermen find catch areas more easily and accurately. I Gede Merta Yoga Pratama is the inventor of the Fish Go Application.

This application was inspired by the popular Pokemon Go Game a few years ago. This concept inspired I Gede Merta Yoga Pratama to create Fish Go. It was made because of the condition of Indonesia, that is known as a maritime country. But in fact, fishermen are still classified as a vulnerable group with high job risks. Fishing activities, which are still very traditional, are no longer of much help. The circulation of the constellations that have been the reference so far in fact still makes fishermen have to go around looking for fish gathering points, fuel consumption becomes more. In addition, the fishermen also have to face dangers because they are not equipped with accurate weather prediction capabilities. I Gede realized that fishing points can be predicted through satellite imagery obtained from fish characteristic data.

This Android-based application for determining fish catch areas has several excellent features, including: potential fishing areas, best fishing times, safe fishing routes, hourly weather forecast information. Fish Go is also equipped with the ability to compare the experience of fisherman catching fish or condition in the field by utilizing algorithm patterns so that they can provide certainty and accuracy of information.
