In the evolving landscape of aquaculture, remote offshore fish farms present unique challenges and opportunities. This paper investigates the potential of harnessing cellular communications, with a particular emphasis on 5G, to enhance connectivity in these distant marine environments. Through link budget analysis, we evaluate the channel conditions over the vast distances that remote offshore fish farms require. The research sheds light on how various environmental factors impact signal strength and highlights the transformative role of machine learning in streamlining farm operation data, paving the way for efficient real-time monitoring. The findings underscore the potential of cellular communications in advancing offshore aquaculture monitoring, ensuring efficient data transmission, and fostering sustainable marine farming practices.
