MDWFP and Delta State University to Host Pond Management Workshop in Bolivar County
JACKSON - The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks (MDWFP) Fisheries Bureau and Delta State University are hosting a pond management workshop in Bolivar County. The workshop will be held at Delta State University in Caylor Hall, Room 105 located at the corner of Oak Street and Fifth Avenue in Cleveland on Thursday, April 24 at 6:30 p.m. An hour-long presentation will include topics on pond design, fish stocking, harvest, vegetation control, liming, and fertilization. A question-and-answer period will follow. Those interested in attending the workshop are asked to preregister by calling the Delta region fisheries office at (662) 759-6444.
"This workshop will allow biologists and private pond owners the opportunity to discuss management options to improve fish populations and habitat," says MDWFP fisheries biologist Darrin Hardesty. "We talk to people each year that want to manage their ponds effectively and this is a great way for us to provide how-to information that can help pond owners achieve their goals."
