× In order to find them efficiently, it is necessary to make detailed seabed topography maps.
✓ In order to find them efficiently, it is necessary to make detailed topographic maps of the sea floor.

A "fishery" is usually used in reference to man-made spots where fish is caught and processed. Using it to refer to "blessing of nature" can sound a little wrong.

"Seabed resources" can be better referred to by their specific resources, because many of them can also be found on land. So, making a short list of natural resources in general may be better.

"Topography" is a noun that, on its own, has little to do with maps. A "topographic map" is what you were looking for, as "topographic" is the proper adjective.

It's also slightly more natural to say "topographic maps of the sea floor" as opposed to "seabed topographic maps." You want to describe what it is a map of after saying it is a map, not before.
