The workshop will be held at the MSU Central Mississippi Research and Education Center located at 1320 Seven Springs Rd. in Raymond on Thursday evening, June 21st 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 register by calling the Hinds County Extension Service Office at (601) 857-2284.

“This workshop will allow biologists and private pond owners the opportunity to discuss all aspects of pond management,” says MDWFP fisheries biologist Ryan Jones. “We talk to many people each year who want help managing their ponds, and this is a great way for us to provide personal how-to information that can help pond owners achieve their goals.”
