In the real world, it is very difficult for fish farmers to select the perfect fish species for aquaculture in a specific aquatic environment. The main goal of this research is to build a Machine Learning that can predict the perfect fish species in an aquatic environment.  In this paper, we have utilized a model using Random Forest. To validate the model, we have used a dataset of aquatic environment for 11 different fishes. To predict the fish species, we utilized the different characterics of aquiatic environment including ph, temperature, turbidity. As a performance metrics, we measured accuacry, TP rate, kappa statistics. Experimental results demonstrate that the proposed Random Forest based prediction model shows accuracy 88.48%, kappa statistic 87.11% and TP rate 88.5% for the tested dataset. In addition, we compare the proposed model with the state-of-art models- J48, Random Forest, KNN, Classification and Regression (CART). The proposed model outperforms than the existing models by exhibiting the higher accuracy score, TP rate and kappa statistics.
