The Tourism Awareness Group of Klayar Manunggal, located in the village of Kedungpoh, Nglipar District, Gunung Kidul Regency, Yogyakarta, currently consists of more than 30 families and is in the process of developing the Klayar tourism village. This effort is carried out by integrating several tourism components, including the exotic natural scenery of Klayar, the presentation of the local traditional cuisine of silver rasbora fish, known well as wader fish, and fruit picking. The economic potential of Klayar tourism village is very promising, but the achievements are not optimal, especially regarding fisheries management. The problems currently being faced are the wader cultivation that requires a supply of cheap and good quality fish feed in sufficient quantities. This program aimed to implement wader fish farming on a mass scale with self-produced fish feed. Furthermore, it is also targeted to provide an understanding of the importance of wader fish conservation efforts to the community. The planned programs were implemented well, resulting in a permanent pond for silkworms cultivation and training in worm cultivation.
