Vannamei shrimp is one of the leading commodities in fisheries aquaculture, due to its competitive price and the ability to be mass-produced with high stocking densities. Many coastal communities in East Java capitalize on this opportunity by engaging in vannamei shrimp cultivation. However, most shrimp farmers still measure pond water quality using conventional methods and record water quality parameters on paper, which is highly inefficient. With this issue in mind, the author sought to engage in community service by inviting representatives from the East Java vannamei shrimp farming community. The method involved delivering lectures and interactive discussions with shrimp farmers to understand their perceptions and insights regarding pond water quality, followed by the handover of modules, and subsequently evaluating the modules' usage by the shrimp farmers. As a result of this community service, we introduced a tool to assist traditional shrimp pond farmers in monitoring water quality, in the form of a "Water Quality Meter" module integrated with a website accessible via smartphones and laptops. The "Water Quality Meter" module was designed with a system to portable monitor pond water quality using Internet of Things (IoT) technology, where data obtained by microcontrollers is transmitted to a database to determine the quality value of pond water. Evaluation results indicate that farmers can use the module effectively, and data collected on the website shows that pond water quality for the farmers remains within normal ranges. Shrimp farmers directly benefit from using the module, as the shrimp pond monitoring process becomes more practical and accurate.
