The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks (MDWFP) Fisheries Bureau is hosting a pond management workshop in Monroe County. The workshop will be held at the pavilion at Lake Monroe located at 20018 Lake Monroe Drive off Coontail Road between Amory and Aberdeen on Thursday evening, May 17th at 6 p.m.  An hour-long presentation will include topics on pond design, fish stocking, harvest, vegetation control, liming, and fertilization.  Pond owners will also be able to talk with biologists regarding questions they have about their ponds. Those interested in attending the workshop are asked to register by calling the Fisheries Bureau at (601) 432-2212.

“This workshop will allow pond owners to interact with fisheries biologists and learn more about managing their fisheries to achieve their specific goals,” said MDWFP fisheries biologist Trevor Knight.  "It is also a great opportunity for people interested in building a pond to learn everything they need to know to properly construct a pond to avoid future problems."
