Notice: As of 2014 and for the forthcoming years, the publication frequency/periodicity of WSEAS Journals is adapted to the 'continuously updated' model. What this means is that instead of being separated into issues, new papers will be added on a continuous basis, allowing a more regular flow and shorter publication times. The papers will appear in reverse order, therefore the most recent one will be on top.

ABSTRACT: Drastic growth of sensor network technology paves way to the socio economic applications in all aspects. Similarly introduction of new sensor for various parameters increases the scope for data collection and manipulation for useful inferences. In order to exploit largest unutilized resources vested with the ocean environment, the necessity arises for the researchers to find out the sensor network suitable for the monitoring of fish movements and to decide on the probable area for data communication in underwater. Main objective of the paper is to monitor and analyze the fish movement and behaviour in the underwater sensor networks by introducing the new algorithm called AFISH [ARTIFICIAL FISH] algorithm, which will study the movement and behaviour of fish in the water with certain parameters. The behaviour is observed with certain under water sensors placed along the Length, breadth and depth of earmarked area and with the help of data fusion the information is observed and manipulated to understand the data communication area and optimum time for the same. The simulation results show that the proposed AFISH algorithm for fish movement monitoring works effectively under certain presumed conditions
