MDWFP and MSU to Host Pond Management Workshop in Lauderdale County

MERIDIAN - 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 Auditorium located at 2128 Highway 39 North in Meridian on Thursday evening, May 4th 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 Lauderdale County Extension Service Office at (601) 482-9764.

“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.”
