    ABSTRACT: In recent years, several technologies have helped human society to make better use of the resources provided by nature, which can be in continental environments, such as aquatic environments. However, the use of human resources occurs in a different way: some are rudimentary and others with use of appropriate technologies, seeking for a better management of the use of resources. In activities related to fishing, this fact can be observed, with the use of new technologies which has added increasing importance to this activity. Considering that the areas where fishing is developed, extension and expression have varied—local, regional, national and even global level, however, the scales and techniques used to study fish are likely to be represented in digital media and monitored through software and hardware called geo-technologies. This paper aims to analyze the use of geo-information techniques in environmental studies—focusing on fishing activities and in what ways, the issue of territory, the scale study, and the use of these geo-technologies favoring fishing activities. Thus, we seek to demonstrate the use of these methods as a subsidy in territorial planning and management of fishery resources.
