JACKSON - The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries,
and Parks (MDWFP) Fisheries Bureau and the Mississippi State
University Extension Service arehosting a pond management workshop
in Rankin County. The workshop will be held at the Rankin County
Extension Office located at 601 Marquette Road in Brandon, MS on
Thursday, July 19 at 6:30 pm. An hour-long presentation will
include topics on pond design, fish stocking, harvest, vegetation
control, liming, and fertilizing. A question-and-answer period will
follow. Those interested in attending the workshop are asked to
register by calling the Extension Office at (601) 825-1462 or the

"This workshop will allow biologists and private pond owners
the opportunity to discuss management options to improve fish
populations and habitat," according to MDWFP fisheries biologist

ponds effectively and this is a great way for us to provide how-to
information that can help pond owners achieve their goals."
