Red tide, causes aquaculture industry the damages in Korea every summer, was usually detected by using satellite, aquaculture information was difficult to detect by using satellite. Therefore, we suggests the method for detecting the red tide using the coastal observation and the product from the unmanned aerial Vehicle. As a result, we obtained the high resolution unmanned aerial Vehicle images, detected the red tide by using the unsupervised classification from the true color images and the simple algorithm from the RGB color images. Compared the previous color images, unmanned aerial Vehicle images were clearly classified the ocean color, we were able to identify the red tide distribution in sea surface. These methods were determined to accurately monitor the red tide distribution on the aquaculture fields in the coastal waters where is established the aquaculture.
