We have proposed a fish farm monitoring system for achieving efficient fish farming. In our system, sensor nodes are attached at fish to monitor its health status. In this letter, we propose a method for gathering sensor data from sensor nodes to sink nodes when the transmission range of sensor node is shorter than the size of fish cage. In our proposed method, a part of sensor nodes become leader nodes and they forward gathered sensor data to the sink nodes. Through simulation evaluations, we show that the data gathering performance of our proposed method is higher than that of traditional methods.
