Pond Assistance

MDWFP Fisheries Biologists provide pond information through phone calls, faxes, mail, and Email. Onsite sampling of ponds may be done only after the receipt of an application for such and the District Fisheries Biologist determines if this service is necessary to assess the current pond situation. This is a free service.

2016 Pond Management Workshops

The MDWFP Fisheries Bureau will be conducting pond management workshops during 2016.  The workshops consist of an hour-long presentation and include topics on pond design, fish stocking, harvest, vegetation control, liming, and fertilizing.  The 2016 schedule can be viewed here
