MDWFP to Host Pond Management Workshop in Monroe County

JACKSON - The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks (MDWFP) Fisheries Bureau is hosting a pond management workshop in Monroe County. The workshop will be held in the Monroe County Extension Office located at 517 Highway 145 N., Suite 1, Aberdeen, MS 39730 on Thursday, April 18 at 6:30 p.m.  An hour-long presentation will include topics on pond design, fish stocking, harvest, vegetation control, liming, and fertilizing. A question and answer period will follow. Those interested in attending the workshop are asked to register by calling the Monroe County Extension Office at (662) 369-4951.

"This workshop will allow biologists and private pond owners the opportunity to discuss management options to improve fish populations and habitat in their ponds," said MDWFP fisheries biologist Nathan Martin. "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."
