MDWFP to Host Pond Management Workshop in Tippah County

JACKSON - The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks (MDWFP) Fisheries Bureau is hosting a pond management workshop in Tippah County. The workshop will be held at the Tippah County Extension Office located at 10791B Hwy 15 South in Ripley, MS on Thursday, March 21 at 6:30 p.m.  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 Tippah County Extension Office at (662) 837-8184.

 

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