MDWFP & MSU to Host Pond Management Workshop in Bolivar County

JACKSON - Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks (MDWFP) Fisheries Bureau and the Mississippi State University Extension Service are hosting a pond management workshop in Bolivar County.  "This workshop will allow biologists and private pond owners the opportunity to discuss management options to improve fish populations and habitat," according to MDWFP fisheries biologist Nathan Aycock. "We will be specifically focusing on issues and opportunities that come with managing ponds in the Mississippi Delta."    

The workshop will be held at the Bolivar County Extension office in Cleveland on Tuesday, June 12, 2012 at 6:00 p.m. An hour-long presentation will be given that includes topics on pond design, fish stocking, harvest, vegetation control, liming, and fertilizing. A question-and-answer period will follow to address additional topics.
