Pond Assistance


pond workshop web

MDWFP Fisheries Biologists provide pond information through phone calls, faxes, mail, and Email. An onsite sampling of ponds may be done only after the receipt of an application for such and the District Fisheries Biologist determines if this service is necessary to assess the current pond situation. This is a free service.
