Why are my Cloud-Free SST Charts One Day Old?

At FishTrack, we try to provide you with the most up-to date charts possible. Why then are you seeing a chart that is a day old?

We receive Sea Surface Temperature (SST) readings daily from many different satellites that circle the globe. The satellites capture the SST at different times and points all around the world. The satellite raw data is then sent to our model to process and extract what is needed, which can take some time. The model then generates an accurate visual rendering of the SST that we display on our FishTrack products. This whole process can take some time to complete due to the plethora of data coming in daily which is why you may be seeing a slight delay.

We are constantly working on getting accurate charts available to you as soon as possible. If you continually see charts that are over a day old, please reach out to support@fishtrack.com and we'd be happy to look into it!
