MDWFP to Host Pond Management Workshop in Washington County
JACKSON - The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks (MDWFP) is hosting a pond management workshop at the Washington County Extension office in Greenville. The workshop will be held at 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, April 25, 2013. "This free workshop is designed to better equip pond owners and future pond owners to maximize the potential of their ponds," according to MDWFP fisheries biologist Nathan Aycock. "Whether it's how to control algae, how to improve the fishing, or anything in between, we want to help you enjoy your pond as much as possible."
Topics that will be covered include pond construction, fish stocking, vegetation control, fertilization, fish harvest, and more. A question and answer period will also allow pond owners to receive advice on specific problems they are experiencing with their ponds. For more information or to register for the workshop, call the Washington County Extension office at (662) 334-2670 or the Delta region fisheries office at (662) 759-6444.
