Monitoring water quality parameters impacted by Indonesia’s weather using internet of things

Mohammad Faisal Riftiarrasyid, Benfano Soewito


Increasing need for food resources, State of Indonesia to strive to maximize the output of food production. Not only in agriculture but also aquaculture results are also trying to be improved. This is also supported by the increase of Indonesia’s national fish consumption rate from 50.69 Kg per capita in 2018 to 55.37 Kg per capita in 2021. Recent aquaculture research only explored topics about monitoring the cultivation environment. But there have been no studies exploring how bad the impact of weather on the process of farming. Hence, this study aims to measure the influence of weather on freshwater aquaculture pond water quality and analyze its impact on fish growth namely Oreochromis Sp., using pH sensors and dissolved oxygen (DO). Then a weather simulation was carried out based on Indonesia’s tropical climate, which majorly consists of sunny and rainy weather. The experimental results indicate the instability of the pH value during the rainy period. DO values tend to decrease at the end of periods of sunny weather. Moreover, fish growth analysis showed that there was a decrease in food conversion ratio (FCR) by 0.956, specific growth rate (SGR) by 2.13% and survival rate (SR) by 5.715% during rainy weather.
