MDWFP & MSU to Host Pond Management Workshop in Forrest 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 Forrest County.  "We receive numerous requests for help managing ponds to achieve pond owner goals - whether it is catching bigger bass, creating a quality bream fishery or simply stocking catfish," according to MDWFP fisheries biologist Stephen Brown. "Anyone interested in learning more about pond management or those considering building a pond are encouraged to attend."    
The workshop will be held at Paul B. Johnson State Park in Hattiesburg on Tuesday, June 26, 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. Those interested in attending the workshop are asked to register by calling the Forrest County Extension Office at 601-545-6083.
