Ch. Jayalakshmi ,S.Kalpana,G.N.Swamy

Around 7% of global aquaculture productions is the contribution byIndia after china.Strengthening its position as a leading supplier of quality frozen shrimp and frozen fish in international markets, India’s seafood exports register 13% growth in Apr 2017-Jan 2018. However, shrimps are predisposed to diseases and other problems due to poor water quality in ponds. Waterqualitymonitoringreferstothe daily observation and analysis of quality parameters by adopting good quality managementstrategies. The water quality is monitored through the parameters like temperature, dissolved oxygencontent, pH value, ammonia components are to be monitored and controlled time to time forbetter production. Generally, the controlling process is performed manually. But the availability of labour all the time is difficult so, there is necessity for the automated system. The information about the pond conditions are sent to the farmer in the form of a message through wireless sensor networks. The system was implemented through LABVIEW.
