This is a kind of descriptive qualitative research using case study framework. The data were collected through in-depth interviews, observation, and documentation and analyzed qualitatively employing data reduction, data display, and data verification. The findings indicated that some strategies have been implemented in empowering the community based on the freshwater aquaculture activity, consisting of building the community awareness on the importance of fish farming group (pokdakan), building institutional capacity through education, training and workshop of fish farming management, and putting group members’ knowledge and skill into practice.
