MDWFP & MSU to Host Pond Management Workshop in Rankin County
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 MDWFP regional office at (601) 859-3421.
"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 Larry Bull. "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."
