Abstract: The fishing is one of the most dangerous profession in the world.In South Asian Countries like TamilNadu and Gujarat faces many problems because of crossing Indian Maritime border limits.The proposed system prevents the fishermen from these problems. The proposed project aims at providing a possible solution to the various hardships faced by the fishermen because they are cut off from any form of communication.. In this project a portable device will be made, which uses GPS for real time location detection and uses Zigbee for wireless communication. The device also has a small o LED display and a button which acts as a multipurpose signalling switch. Each of the fishing boats is provided with this portable device. Using the Zigbee transceivers on each of the units, all the boats can form a AD Hoc network within themselves.
