Research on underwater image analysis is critical because of challenges such as color distortion, low contrast, and noise in images. Various methods have been proposed to overcome this problem. To improve the quality and classification of underwater photos, this study aims to ensure improved performance using Contrast Limited Adaptive Histogram Equalization (CLAHE) and Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN) on underwater image datasets. The dataset consists of 500 JPG image with RGB channel and dimensions of 512 × 512 collected from online sources. There are classifications of sharks, eels, dolphins, sea rays, and whales in the underwater imagery dataset. The experiment was conducted using Python programming language on a computer that had 24GB RAM, Intel® Core™ i7-10510U CPU and hardware properties of Intel® HD Graphics graphics card. The results of this study show how CLAHE improved the CNN classification of underwater imagery by 0.91% in training data, 0.45% in validation data, and 2.02% in test data.
