Indonesia is one of the countries in this world that has the most outstanding fishery potential. There are more than 3000 fish species under Indonesia's sea, yet the people are still not able to relish them completely. Illegal fishing by foreign ships in Indonesia's territorial sea is one of the reasons why this happens. In order to minimize this kind of loss, those ships should be detected automatically by implementing image processing and artificial intelligence techniques. The study proposed techniques for automatic detection of ships at sea on digital images. These techniques are global image thresholding and artificial neural network backpropagation. The result of this research is proposed of technique able to detect ship with 85% accuracy level. This method may be improved by adding more training data varieties.
