Aquaculture plays an important role in providing food security to the world and increasing steadily as one of the most sustainable methods of food production. The monitoring of water quality has great significance in aquaculture. Monitoring the water quality parameters such as Temperature, Dissolved Oxygen, Salinity, pH etc. enables us understanding the farm in-depth & helps to optimize the use of resources, improve sustainability, profitability and most importantly to reduce the impact of aquaculture on the environment. Water quality determines the fish behavior and health of the farm as well. The objective of this paper is to review current research works and studies on water quality monitoring systems and various estimation techniques, in order to understand different challenges faced in water quality monitoring for aquaculture. The study starts with the evolution of water quality monitoring, importance of wireless sensor networks and gives overall perspective on presentwater quality monitoring systems [1].
