MDWFP and Southwest MS Community College to Host Pond Management Workshop in Pike County

JACKSON - The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks (MDWFP) Fisheries Bureau and Southwest Mississippi Community College (SMCC) are hosting a pond management workshop in Pike County. The workshop will be held on the SMCC campus in the Workforce Training Center, room 151 on Tuesday, June 17 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 Jill Gunnell at (601) 276-4811. 


"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, Jerry Brown. "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."
