The skipjack tuna fishing ground in Southeast Sulawesi located around of Minui island waters and western waters of Banda sea. The purpose of this research is to analyze sea surface temperature at location fishing ground skipjack tuna using satellite data of Aqua MODIS then mapping of location points fishing ground. The study was conducted for three months, from May to July 2014. Recording of fishing ground positions is performed on every fishing operation using GPS. The results showed that around of skipjack fishing ground found the highest SST in May with a temperature of 31.64°C and the lowest in June with a temperature of 25°C. The highest CPUE was obtained on June 13, 2014, with a total of 101 tail with an average temperature of 27.59°C while CPUE occurred on June 13, 2014, with a total of 72 tails with an average temperature of 26.45°C. From results of tracking of fishing ground shows skipjack tuna fishermen in every fishing operation actually has a fishing orientation based on the existence of fish and from the experience of conducting fishing operations in the area that has been done continuously.
