Many residents of Siwatu Village of Batang Regency employ their land to produce catfish. This fish is chosen because it can be harvested in a relatively short time with simple maintenance. However, being a catfish farmer is not as easy as imagined. Many obstacles have to be overcome, such as, lack of availability of seeds, the high cost of catfish feed, the lack of capital and the dominant role of loan sharks in the catfish trade in Siwatu. The paper objectives are to describe strategic steps in assisting catfish famers to survive in the industrial competition through innovation and entrepreneurship training. Solutions offered in the form of institutional strengthening, feed production innovation, increased value-added product, entrepreneurship training for the fish farmers and connecting to advisory agency.
Key words: !Innovation, Entrepreneurship, Entrepreneurs
