The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks (MDWFP) Fisheries Bureau and the Mississippi State University Extension Service will host pond management workshops in Itawamba and Attala Counties. The workshops will be held at the Itawamba County Extension Office located at 605-A South Cummings Street in Fulton on Tuesday, June 18 and the Attala County Extension Office located at 715 Fairground Road in Kosciusko on Thursday, June 20. Both workshops begin at 6 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. Anyone interested in attending the workshop is asked to register by calling the Itawamba County Extension Office at (662) 862-3201 or the Attala County Extension Office at (662) 289-1321.
“This workshop will allow biologists and private pond owners the opportunity to discuss management options to improve fish populations and habitat,” said MDWFP Fisheries Biologist Ryan Jones. “We talk with people each year who 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.”
