MDWFP to Host Pond Management Workshop in Forrest County

JACKSON - The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks (MDWFP) Fisheries Bureau is hosting a pond management workshop in Forrest County. The workshop will be held at the Paul B. Johnson State Park office located at 319 Geiger Lake Road on Tuesday, May 10 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 the park office at (601) 582-7721.

 

"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 Stephen Brown. "We talk to people each year that want to manage their ponds effectively and this is a great way for us to provide personal, how-to information that can help pond owners achieve their goals."
