Nowadays, the aquaculture of oysters represents an important economical activity in coastal and estuarine areas. It is known that the growth rate of oysters is affected by several water parameters, including temperature, salinity, turbidity, pH and dissolved oxygen. In this paper, a cloud-based platform is proposed to acquire water parameters that affect oysters' growth. The paper includes the hardware and software description of the measurement system, details about the storage and processing of the acquired data, and some experimental results about the above-mentioned parameters.
