In addition, this activity is expected to help the community in opening new business opportunities, provide natural food, reduce production costs, and improve the community's economy. The implementation of service activities is carried out using counseling methods with material exposure activities and direct practice regarding the stages of this Tubifex cultivation, with questionnaires and interactive discussions between devotees and students. From the results of community service activities conducted, it is concluded that participants of the service received new knowledge on the cultivation of Tubifex worms as one of the very promising economic opportunities. Furthermore, the servants gained field knowledge and new experiences on how to approach the general public, especially freshwater fish farmers
