Aquaculture mainly refers to cultivating aquatic organisms providing suitable environments for various purposes, including commercial, recreational, public purposes. This paper aims to enhance the production of fish and maintain the aquatic environment of aquaculture in Bangladesh. This paper presents the way of using Internet of Things (IoT) based devices to monitor aquaculture’s basic needs and help provide things needed for the fisheries. Using these devices, various parameters of water will be monitored for a better living environment for fish. These devices consist of some sensors that will detect the Potential of Hydrogen (pH) level, the water temperature, and there will be two extra sections where the measurement of dissolved oxygen level and ammonia level using the testing kits can be determined which are needed for proper fish farming in the right water. An android-based mobile application has also been developed. In this system, farmers, fishermen, and people related to aquaculture will be the users of an android application. Via that application and with the help of a device, users will be notified about the amount of dissolved oxygen, ammonia level, pH level, and water body temperature. This monitoring system will help fish farmers to take the necessary steps to prevent any disturbance in an aquatic environment. Though Bangladesh is a riverine country and fish farming has a huge impact on this country’s economy, it is necessary to keep in good health to produce more and more fish. But the fisheries of this country are not expert enough to understand how to provide necessary elements to fish and what to do. They might get help from this system and measure the parameters they can give necessary things to grow more fish.
