MDWFP to Host Pond Management Workshop in Forrest County

JACKSON - The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks (MDWFP) is hosting a pond management workshop at Paul B. Johnson State Park located south of Hattiesburg off Hwy 49. The workshop will be held at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, May 7 in the conference room at the park office.  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.

"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 Jeremy McCain. "This is a great way for us to provide how-to information that can help pond owners achieve their goals."  For more information, call Stephen Brown at Paul B. Johnson State Park at (601) 582-7721.
