MDWFP to Host Pond Management Workshop in Lincoln County
JACKSON - The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks (MDWFP) is hosting a pond management workshop in Lincoln County. The workshop will be held at the Lincoln County Civic Center multi-purpose building located at 1096 Belt Line Dr. NE in Brookhaven on Thursday, April 25 at 6:00 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 Lincoln County Extension office at (601) 835-3460.
"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 Jerry Brown. "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."
