ENID, Okla. —
A healthy pond can be a significant asset to any farming or ranching operation, but maintaining optimal fisheries production and water quality often requires appropriate knowledge and effort.
To help resource managers maximize their aquatic re-sources, The Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation will host a pond management workshop 1-7 p.m. May 14 at the Noble Foundation Pavilion in Ardmore.
The workshop emphasizes pond management for sport fishing, but will address aspects of other pond goals-. It will feature sessions on:
• Designing and constructing impoundments.
• Water quality.
• Fish identification, ecology and stocking.
• Management of existing fisheries.
• Aquatic plant identification and management.
“Considerable misunderstanding and misinformation exists regarding ponds, which results in mismanagement of this valuable resource,” said Mike Porter, wildlife and fisheries consultant.
Registration fee is $20, and the cost includes dinner.
