An hour-long presentation will include topics on pond design, fish stocking, harvest, aquatic vegetation control, liming, and fertilization. A question-and-answer period will follow. “These workshops allow biologists and private pond owners the opportunity to discuss all aspects of pond management,” said MDWFP Fisheries Bureau Assistant Director Larry Bull. “We talk to many people each year who request assistance managing their ponds. This is a great way for us to provide personal how-to information that can help pond owners achieve their goals.”
