In this paper, it will be described the design and realization of online water quality monitoring system based on wireless sensor network (WSN). The new system has been implemented specifically to monitor parameters Dissolved Oxygen (DO), pH and temperature in one spot shrimp aquaculture in Bangka island. The aim was to create suitable water conditions for shrimp aquaculture and save the cost of energy consumption using an automated aeration system, by maintaining the value of the DO above 5 mg/L. On the other hand, water quality data collected from sensor measurements are sent to a data logger using WSN, and then the data is sent to a data center using cellular network (GPRS) such that this data can be viewed using the website. The experimental results show that the system has great prospects and can be used for shrimp aquaculture by providing information that is relevant and timely. The resulting data the collection can be used for research and analysis.
