Recently, people are consuming more fermented food for its health benefits. When we think of fermented food, skate comes to mind. However, there are different preferences depending on the degree of fermentation. Thus, if there is a system that shows the degree of the fermentation on skate, people can eat according to their taste. This paper proposes a design of skate fermentation monitoring system for consumer taste using the smart RFID tag. The proposed system consists of the RFID tag, $NH_3$ sensor, reader, and server. In order to confirm the usefulness of the proposed system, we performed experiments on the skate fermentation. The proposed monitoring system can show the skate fermentation at 4 grades: None, Low, Medium, and Strong. With the smart RFID tag, we successfully estimated the skate fermentation.
