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 group camp on Tuesday, May 21 at 6:00 p.m. The Park is located 15 miles south of Hattiesburg on Highway 49. "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. "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."
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. Those interested in attending the workshop are asked to pre-register by calling Paul B. Johnson State Park at (601) 582-7721.
