Housewives have their own potential for economic development and improvement of family nutrition. African catfish is a fish that has a savory taste and has become part of the Riau community menu. On the other hand, these fish are relatively easy to cultivate, resistant to extreme environments even in narrow areas without the need for running water. This community service activities is aimed at fostering housewives to grow African catfish in drums, make their own catfish feed and process some of their harvest.
