Pond workshops to be held across Mississippi
Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks Fisheries Bureau and the Mississippi State University Extension Service will host 12 pond management workshops across Mississippi in 2012.
The workshops are designed to provide pond owners and future pond owners with information regarding the management of their small lakes.
“Our fisheries biologists receive hundreds of calls each year from pond owners who have questions ranging from growing bigger fish to controlling aquatic vegetation”, said MDWFP Fisheries Bureau Assistant Director Larry Pugh. “The workshops will allow biologists and pond owners across the State to interact and provide participants with management strategies.”
An hour-long presentation will be given at each workshop. Topics will include pond design, fish stocking, harvest, vegetation control, liming, fertilizing. A question-and-answer period will follow to address additional topics. Those interested in attending a pond management workshop are encouraged to register. Contact information for registration, along with the location, date, and time for each workshop will be posted on the MDWFP website, www.mdwfp.com, or call (601) 432-2199.
