ABSTRACT

 

Automated Fish Feeder is a system, which focuses on aiding small scale fish farmers to feed their farms efficiently. By using Arduino and Internet of Things, this is made possible. This provides fish farmers with time and adequate information as the system is set to feed at several time intervals and send information through the internet should the feed container be low or empty . In addition, the system has so many potentials. The system can be embed into other systems such as a water changing system. By doing this, it could be more convenient for farmer as it reduces the cost of lab and no matter where they are, their farm can still be taken care of. The Aim of the project is to provide an efficient way of feeding a small scale fish farm.[BO2]

CHAPTER ONE

 

1.0 Introduction
1.1 BACKGROUND AND MOTIVATION Fish Farming is the principal form of aquaculture, it involves raising fish commercially in ponds or tanks mostly for food. In Nigeria, Out of 100 percent of fish harvested, 80 percent serves as the food consumed and the remaining 20 percent goes into the manufacturing of products such as fish oil, fertilizers, and animal food. [1] Fisheries and aquaculture are integral parts of agriculture which were found to have the capacity to increase the country’s GDP (Gross Domestic Product) and it is a very lucrative business in Nigeria. However, it is one thing to have a fish farm and it another thing to maintain a fish farm. Having worked in my father’s fish farmer and my supervisors also having had some experience in the fish farm business, we observed that there were several challenges that accompanies fish farming business such as;  Lack of time for the farmers  Loss on investment due to fishes consuming each other  High Cost of Labour [BO4]

1.2 PROBLEM STATEMENT Running a fish farm business requires a lot of time, it is capital intensive and all risk must be calculated to ensure that there is maximum return of and on investment. When it comes to feeding a fish farm, it requires a lot of money, time to constant supervise and feed the fishes on time, but farmers have other things on their schedule than sitting around all attending to their farmers. Sometimes, even external help that is paid for can be very risky as some if not all can be nonchalant. This fishes tend to feed on the weak or injured among them on two scenarios which are;  Improper feeding due to minimization of fish pallets  Improper feeding due to late timing Farmers lose a lot of money each time a single fish is consumed, as 1 kg weight of fish is worth three thousand naira (N 3,000).[BO5]
1.3 PROJECT OBJECTIVE
The Aim of the project is to provide an efficient way of feeding a small scale fish farm.
1.4 OUTLINE OF THE REPORT Chapter 1 introduces the system to be built, the motivation for it and the projects aims and objectives. Chapter 2 outlines the requirements needed to develop the system, to ensure it meets the scope and functions efficiently. These requirements includes software and hardware requirements for building the system. A full description of each component used to make to execute the system

Chapter 3 explains the hardware and software design of the system. Details of how the hardware are coupled together and details of how the software is used to send information through the internet. Chapter 4 concludes the report describing some of the challenges that was faced, describing the future goals, in terms of the improvement of the system.[BO6]
