Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are becoming popular in real life applications. Because of the top features of the resource-constrained and battery-aware sensors, in WSNs energy utilization has found to be always a major interesting subject of research. WSNs compose battery-powered nodes, which are linked to the beds base station to for many actions or task. As sensor nodes are battery-powered i.e. can be dead after the consumption of the battery that is also called duration of WSNs. So utilizing the energy in well-organized way, may end in prolonging the duration of the WSNs. Sensor nodes possess a negative characteristic of limited energy, which pulls back the network from exploiting its peak capabilities. Hence, it is essential to gather and transfer the data in a optimized way which reduces the vitality dissipation. In this paper, a survey on various mobile sink based clustering protocols is presented. From the survey, it has been concluded that none of the technique performs effectively in all fields.
