We have proposed a fish farm monitoring system for the efficient farming of tuna. In our system, energy efficient and adaptive control of sensor node is highly important. In addition, since a sensor node is attached to the fish, the transmission range of sensor node is not omni-directional. In this paper, we propose a data gathering mechanism for fish farm monitoring by extending a traditional desyncronization mechanism. In our proposed mechanism, by utilizing acknowledgment packets from the sink node, distributed and adaptive timing control of packet transmission is accomplished. In addition, we apply a reassignment mechanism and a sleep mechanism for improving the performance of our proposed mechanism. Through simulation experiments, we show that the performance of our proposed mechanism is higher than that of comparative mechanisms.
