MDWFP to Host Pond Management Workshop in Adams County
JACKSON - The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks (MDWFP) Fisheries Bureau is hosting a pond management workshop in Adams County. The workshop will be held at Natchez State Park located approximately 10 miles north of Natchez, off Highway 61, on Tuesday, May 6 at 6 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 park office at (601) 442-2658.
"This workshop will allow biologists and private pond owners the opportunity to discuss management options to improve fish populations and habitat," says Jerry Brown, MDWFP fisheries biologist. "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."
