MDWFP to Host Pond Management Workshop in Harrison County
JACKSON - The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks (MDWFP) is hosting a pond management workshop in Harrison County. The workshop will be held at the Lyman Community Center located at 13472 Highway 49 in Gulfport on Thursday, May 21, 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.
"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 Jeremy McCain. "We talk to people each year that want to manage their ponds effectively and this is a great way for us to provide personal how-to information that can help pond owners achieve their goals."
For more information, call Jeremy McCain or Stephen Brown at Paul B. Johnson State Park at (601) 582-7721.
