The goal of this research is to develop an operational method for characterizing algae available for harvesting by using multispectral remote sensing. A site located on the Côte-Nord was mapped by taking into account the limits and areas of algae-covered areas. Thereafter, our team carried out a classification and quantification of algal resources according to groups and subgroups: green algae, red algae, Laminariales brown algae and Fucus brown algae. The project has thus confirmed that it is indeed possible to classify and quantify according only to these specific groups.
