This field activity was conducted from May to July 2023 at the technical services unit Cibiru Fish Seed Center (Cibiru FSC), located in Pasir Biru Village, Cibiru District, Bandung City. The primary aim of this activity is to gain insights into consumption fish cultivation activities and the community-oriented role of the Cibiru FSC. The methodology involves active participation in the FSC's activities, field observations, discussions with field supervisors, and consultations with experts at Cibiru FSC. “Nirwana” tilapia spawning was conducted semi-naturally, employing 3 nets of 4x4 m hapa nets in Pond D Cibiru FSC, which spans 30x30 m. Each hapa net accommodates 100 fish, comprising 25 males and 75 females, with a male-to-female parent ratio of 1:3. Water quality assessments indicate favorable conditions at the Cibiru Fish Seed Center, with a pH level of 8.05, a temperature of 28℃, and dissolved oxygen at 7.8, meeting the prerequisites for optimal tilapia cultivation. The Cibiru FSC plays a pivotal role as both a producer and distributor of fish seeds and fish broodstock, particularly tilapia. Consequently, the FSC engages in distributing fish seeds to various groups, including farmers, without charge. The notable aspect of Cibiru FSC is its commitment to providing fish seeds and distribution services at no cost to the recipients, showcasing its dedication to supporting local fish farming initiatives.
