In this paper, the authors design and implemented a dynamic and smart wireless mesh sensor network for aquaculture and water quality management applications. This system utilizes the Waspmote embedded systems platform developed by Libelium, mesh networking transceivers from Digi international and smart sensors from UNISM to implement a novel smart wireless mesh sensor network - aquamesh with multiple gateways of different technologies (Zigbee, GPRS and WIFI). The system is designed to continuously monitor aqua-environmental parameters and then initiate an alert or early warning to system user when certain thresholds are exceeded. The data generated from this system is stored locally on the gateway or sent to a remote web server.
