PEMBERDAYAAN MASYARAKAT PESISIR MELALUI BUDIKDAMBER (BUDIDAYA IKAN DALAM EMBER) UNTUK KETAHANAN PANGAN DI KAMPUNG HOLTEKAMP, DISTRIK MUARA TAMI, KOTA JAYAPURA
The inadequate availability of food to meet the nutritional needs within a region can result in declining welfare, diseases, hunger, and even disasters. Based on interview results, during the sea wave season, the fishing community in Holtekamp Village cannot go fishing, leading to difficulties in obtaining fish as a source of protein. Additionally, during this season, the price of fish in the market rises, causing some individuals to be unable to fulfill their protein needs. One of the solutions offered to the community to meet protein requirements during the wave season without significant costs and with relatively small land usage is by practicing simple aquaponics cultivation methods such as "budikdamber" (fish cultivation in buckets). Training results in a skilled community proficient in cultivating catfish using a simple aquaponics system like budikdamber. This community engagement initiative introduces new knowledge to the residents, enabling them to produce two commodities (fish and vegetables) in a single container, fostering household self-sufficiency, resilience, and nutritional fulfillment during the high wave season. This engagement activity also exhibits a positive correlation with environmental sustainability through the repurposing of used items into aquaponic planting containers and the utilization of household yards for cultivation purposes.
