Proper feeding of the fish is necessary to make them stress free and to get better yield in fish pond management. A Floating mechanism “Embedded Auto Fish Feeder” is developed which feeds fish at regular interval and measures the pond parameters like dissolved oxygen, pH, TDS and temperature which are critically important for fish growth and aquaculture. The acquired data is compared to set limit of critical parameters and transmit wirelessly the data along with decision regarding action to be taken to the host computer in order to reduce the stress on fish and improve the fish growth. The system operates with a 12 V DC rechargeable battery which at fully charged can full fill 3-4 days of feed and sensing of pond parameters. The measured parameters are stored in the embedded system along with date and time. The developed system prototype not only provides a better method to feed fish in precise amount at proper time but also improves feed efficiency, reduces manpower time and cost. It is accurate, reliable and fully automated floating feeder system, with feeding while moving in order to get good spreading of fish food across the pond. The system is successfully deployed in centre with anchor of the half to one hector fish pond at CIFA Bhubaneswar so that it can move slowly with wind and cover around 10 meter area.
