Abstract

This research aims at introducing the Grow My Fish application (or app) as an IoT for collecting and processing data on water quality in biofloc tank for cultivators. IoT in itself has been widely used by several sectors, and one of them is the fisheries sector. Grow My Fish is an app specifically designed to support research in the fisheries field. This research was conducted in Apung Village, Tanjung Selor District, Bulungan Regency from October through December 2023. Biofloc is an innovation in fisheries field. It is known as an eco-friendly innovation thanks to its ability to process the wastes produced by fish into natural feed in the assistance of the probiotic that was mixed into the water. However, the persistent main issue until recently in this biofloc innovation is water quality. Many cultivators so far recorded their water quality measurements on a book. This made it a little hard for these cultivators to process the data. For this reason, an IoT that facilitated cultivators in processing the data on water quality, mortality, fish weight, and amount of feed was born.

Keywords: African catfish, biofloc, IoT, grow my fish, water quality
