This paper presents the findings in developing a decision support in assessing brackish water quality using an electronic taste sensing system made up of sensor array and signal processing tools. Seven ionic sensors and precision centigrade temperature sensor fused together as an array. Developed graphical user interface displays real time measurement and pattern based prediction. Results of periodic test on prepared brackish water solutions showed that the system differentiates samples of varying salinity (0.01 to 0.5 Mol of NaCl per liter), supporting the system usage as salinity detection instrument in aquafarms. Incorporation of temperature sensor increases system stability to temperature drift. System robustness showed that three ionic sensors sufficiently differentiate sixdecade dilution of brackish solution.
