MDWFP and MSU to Host Pond Management Workshop in Webster County

JACKSON –The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks (MDWFP) and the Mississippi State University Extension Service are hosting a pond management workshop in Webster County. The workshop will be held at the Webster County Career and Technology Center at 605 Hall Road in Eupora on Thursday, May 11.  A meal will be provided at 6 p.m. by the Webster County Extension office, followed by an hour-long presentation that 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 Webster County Extension Office at (662) 258-3971 or emailing Ms. Lisa Stewart at

“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 Keith Meals. “This is a great way for us to provide how-to information that can help pond owners achieve their goals.”
