Abstract: One of the serious issue faced by South-East Indian fishermen is ambush attack of neighboring countries due to unaware crossing of the border while fishing. In aim of overcoming this fussy scenario a prototype is modeled with Atmega 328controller and other modern electronics to alert the fishermen. Radio Frequency IDentification (RFID) technology operating in microwave frequency range with high coverage area plays a vital role in alert system. Two levels of boundaries with active RFID tags are erected within the nation’s boundary limit. Global Positioning System (GPS) and Global System for Mobiles (GSM) modules gives hand for location tracking of boats and information transmission respectively. Boats with RFID nearing the first active tag gets alert through via controller through Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) and audio output (speaker) and simultaneously information is conveyed to coastal officials. If the RFID reader detects second active tag, controller autonomously turns off the boat engine. Thus providing safe and secure fishing with low cost and reduces fishermen’s fatal rate
