MDWFP & MSU to Host Pond Management Workshop in Warren 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 Warren County.  "We will discuss management options that can help pond owners achieve their goals - whether that's growing bigger bass or creating a trophy bream fishery," according to MDWFP fisheries biologist Jerry 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 the Warren County Extension office in Vicksburg on Thursday, June 14, 2012 at 6:30 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 Warren County Extension Office at 601-636-5442.
