Integration of underwater imaging using artificial intelligence has become an emerging field for researcher now-adays. Underwater Image processing has wide variety of applications, such as underwater target tracking, marine life surveillance, underwater detection and underwater autonomous navigation. Underwater captured images usually have a problems of unwanted color-cast, color distortion, low contrast, detail blurring and haziness, which in turn degrade the image quality, loss of important

This paper proposes a reason for the underwater image degradation and literature survey of various enhancement techniques for underwater images. Furthermore, the comparison for various image enhancement techniques is elaborated and finally, an enhancement technique for underwater images is summarized and the suggestions for future research are given.
