Every day we hearing news about fishermen killed or imprisoned when they cross the national sea border inadvertently. The most outstanding problem is being going on for trans border fishing. Surveillance is critical problem for border control or commercial facilities. The sea border between the countries is not easily identifiable, which is the main reason for the cross border cruelty. From the fisherman point of view, straying takes place inadvertently due to sheer ignorance about maritime boundaries. This proposed system awares the fisherman that they are about to reach the nautical border. The area is divided into three zones fatal zone, warning zone, zone near to the fatal zone and finally the restricted zone. This system saves the life of the fishermen by making an alarm system and a motor controlled device, which is to be mounted in the boat/ship. If fishermen navigate near country’s border, an alarm is generated indicating that the boat/ship is near the border of our country. The motor turns off if the boat touches the border. Here we have designed a system using embedded system which protects the fishermen by notifying the country border to them by using Global Positioning System (GPS) and Global system for mobile communication (GSM).
