Abstract: This study presents the design and development of a precision fishing technology utilized in water quality monitoring with phytoremediation system using a Zigbee-based Wireless Sensor Network. The system afforded a real-time water quality monitoring using multiple sensors spatially deployed. The sensor node implemented in the Wireless Sensor Network to perform data sensing utilities with the water quality parameters including the water temperature, pH level, water dissolved oxygen and the water level during high-tide and low-tide. During the development, a P89V51RD2 microcontroller, ZigBee module with IEEE 802.15.4 standard, and radio frequency (RF) transceiver were utilized. The developed precision fishing technology utilized the Internet of Things architecture. The IoT device layer includes the temperature sensor, pH sensor, dissolved oxygen sensor, and the water level sensor. Phytoremediation was also used as an alternative solution for soil and water remediation. Further studies using recent and advanced remote sensing technologies and IoT-based solutions can be developed to address issues in the primary sector of the economy.
