The infrastructure requirement for setting up catfish farms include, a source of clean water, an avenue for discharging the waste water and reliable water containment systems. The challenges faced by the operators of these fish ponds include the need for regular feeding of the fish, monitoring of the water quality and the changing of the water when the quality becomes unhealthy for the fish. This work presents an Internet of Things based approach for automating the management of the farms and enabling remote monitoring and management of the ponds. The system comprise of a pond controller which uses appropriate sensors to monitor the water quality of the pond. A CCTV records the activities around the pond and stores them in a cloud location. The Pond controller manages the automatic feeding system of the fish and the water control system for the pond. The system is also designed with capacity for remote operation through a specially designed mobile application which accesses the CCTV files and also controls the operation of the pond controller. This system will enable the management of one or more fish ponds from one mobile device, it will reduce the costs associated with managing the fish farms and improve quality of their yield.
