One of the problems in the freshwater fisheries sector is that the phenomenon of upwelling can occur
anytime without warning signs, especially in lakes. This problem causes a failed harvest and fish
farming business owners suffer a great loss due to the death of fish in large numbers. Upwelling
caused by toxic substances results in increased nitrification from fish feces and remaining fish feed
deposited at the bottom of the Lake rise to the surface quickly. Ammonia (NH3) that are in ionized
form cause no fish around the surface of the Lake because of the lack of oxygen to meet the needs
of hemoglobin, so oxygen cannot be bind or lack of dissolved oxygen (DO). This condition causes
the death of a lot of fish. This research builds a monitoring system to monitor the condition of the
temperature at the surface and at the underwater (5-20 m from the surface) of the lake and to monitor
DO levels to check the possibility of upwelling. Temperature sensors and a DO sensor is connected
with a microcontroller and GSM networks which are connected to the internet, which helps the fish
farmer and related parties to monitor continuously the conditions of farmed fish. The results obtained
by system experiment on the fish farms area (karamba) and non-fish farms area, are accurate and
real time.
