In aqua farms, Fish Feeding and water quality Monitoring is an important challenge. Best Feeding practices trigger the growth and health of Fish while Inappropriate practices lead to food contamination in the water and result in high cost. An Automated Feeder system can solve the existing manual feeding problems and the water quality monitoring system can help to analyse the quality and plan the cleaning. Internet of Things (IOT) is a useful technology and finds its applications in many areas. In this work, water quality of aqua farms is monitored with raspberry pi and several sensors along with a camera. Water quality is calculated with the temperature, pH, colour and the measured parameters are sent to the raspberry pi and processed. A fish food dispenser system can be customized and the Manager can monitor the quality using an android application. The Proposed System would support the operations of aqua farms and can efficiently minimize the cost and the environmental impact.
