Abstract: Aquaculture, in addition to agriculture, is one of the most sought after occupations in the coastal regions of India. The livelihood of thousands of aquaculture farmers depends on the output generated through aquaculture and thus this is one of the major factors influencing the socio-economic status of the country. However, the current practices adopted by these farmers in developing countries are very traditional and need to improve in order to get higher yield and production. This paper presents an intensive review of the design of WSN (Wireless Sensor Network) in aquaculture. Indian scenario of aquaculture is represented through surveys and case studies that were conducted in Bhimavaram, a city in western Godavari region of Andhra Pradesh. A system design based on wireless sensor network is proposed which enables remote monitoring of the aquaculture farms and sending alerts to the farmers when any deteriorating deviation in tank water quality is detected.
