Aquaculture, in addition to agriculture is one of the most sought after occupations for the people of coastal regions of India. These farmers depend on the yield generated from aquaculture farming for their livelihood. However, due to various environmental as well as social factors, the water quality in these farms deteriorates and leads to untimely death of fishes. Such a scenario leads to heavy losses to the farmers. These farmers follow traditional approaches in measuring water quality which is time-consuming and inefficient. They are unable to get any warnings to take measures to save their fishes from getting deteriorated. This paper presents design and development of an Internet of Things(IoT)-based framework which measures water quality in aquaculture farms and provides alerts to the farmers so that they can take necessary precautions and save themselves from hefty losses.
