Aquaculture currently share for nearly half of the worldâs food fish consumption, andÂ continue to be the fastest-growing animal food producing sector. The viability ofÂ aquaculture operation has greatly been affected by the characteristic of marineÂ environment. Inventory and monitoring of marine environment are necessary andÂ can be done through information technology implementation. Frequent monitoringÂ of water temperature, for almost one year observation, at four aquaculture sites inÂ Pegametan Bay and Research and Development Institute for Mariculture wasÂ investigated. Water temperature data were obtained by using logger and buoy systems.Â These data were contrasted against marine fish mortality. On the other hand, theÂ suitability of species requirements with the thermal conditions was evaluated byÂ comparing temperature range to the optimum and lethal temperature informationÂ available on marine fish species of aquaculture interest. This research could beÂ beneficial for enhancing productivity of marine aquaculture operation in terms ofÂ possible impact of climate change. It was also possible to find the ideal temperatureÂ range for culturing fish species, taking into account the variability associated withÂ large-scale phenomena.
