The results of the analysis conclude that fisherwomen are said to be effective in conducting extension education to support sustainable eco-tourism management in the village. This is seen from the effectiveness value of several components in the effective category range (330-540), among others the frequency of Extension conducted by fisherwomen to the family environment and surrounding communities has a value of 380, the value of the level of knowledge about the goals of eco-tourism management obtained by the community from extension communication is 370, and the value of implementing sustainable eco-tourism management by the surrounding community of 360.
