MDWFP and MSU to Host Pond Management Workshop in Leflore County
JACKSON - 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 Leflore County. The workshop will be held at the Leflore County Extension Service Center at 309 West Market Street in Greenwood on Tuesday, May 6 at 6:30 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 (662) 453-6803 or the Delta region fisheries office at (662) 759-6444.
"This workshop will allow biologists and private pond owners the opportunity to discuss management options to improve fish populations and habitat," says MDWFP fisheries biologist, Darrin Hardesty. "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."
