JACKSON - Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks (MDWFP) Fisheries Bureau and the Mississippi State University Extension Service are hosting a pond management workshop in Leflore County. "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 Nathan Aycock. "We've been hosting these workshops around the state all summer and have had a very positive response, and are looking forward to this upcoming meeting in Greenwood."
The workshop will be held at the Leflore County Extension Office in Greenwood on Tuesday, August 28, 2012 at 6:30 p.m. An hour-long presentation will be given that includes topics on pond design, fish stocking, harvest, vegetation control, liming, and fertilizing. A question-and-answer period will follow to address additional topics. Those interested in attending the workshop are asked to register by calling the Leflore County Extension Office at 662-453-6803.
