Abstract

The demand for catfish in Sumbawa Regency continues to increase, but its production is very low so that to meet the needs, catfish are imported from other regions. One factor in the low production of catfish in Sumbawa Regency is the small number of catfish farming businesses. The lack of the number of businessmen is caused by a lack of knowledge and skills of the community in catfish farming. Therefore, it is necessary to improve catfish farming skills through training activities so that the community can conduct independent cultivation as well as the catfish supply in Sumbawa Regency can be fulfilled from the production in the region. This training consists of several stages, namely the stages of counseling, training & mentoring (consisting of land preparation, making tarpaulin ponds, stocking seeds, maintenance, handling diseases until harvesting), and evaluating the results of the activities. The training results show that community groups have been able to cultivate as indicated by the amount of catfish production produced at 392 Kg with total income of Rp 7.720.000 and the value of R/C ratio > 1 (feasible business to run)
