MDWFP & MSU to Host Pond Management Workshop in Lauderdale County
The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks
(MDWFP) Fisheries Bureau and the Mississippi State University
Extension Service are hosting a pond management workshop in
Lauderdale County. The workshop will be held at the East
Mississippi Electric Power Association Office located at 2128
Highway 39 North in Meridian, MS on Tuesday May 15 at 6:00 pm.
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 Extension Office at (601) 482-9764 or the MDWFP
regional office at (601) 859-3421.
"This workshop will allow biologists and private pond owners
the opportunity to discuss management options to improve fish
populations and habitat," according to MDWFP fisheries biologist
Larry Bull. "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."
