July 14, 9am–4pmWhere
Millcreek Township Hall 10420 Watkins Road, Marysville, Ohio
The goal of this workshop is to provide information and strategies that might allow pond culturists to intensify their operation and grow more pounds of fish per acre of water. New ponds are increasingly more expensive to build, so it makes sense to maximize production in existing ponds.
Topics to be covered during the workshop are 1) OSU’s ongoing NCRAC research project on intensifying pond production via intensive aeration and / or split pond production, 2) hands-on water quality testing (courtesy of YSI Inc.) and interpretation of results, and 3) in-pond demonstration of various aeration techniques pond culturist can use, including the pros and cons of each.
The workshop will be held at Millcreek Perch Farm, LLC and the Millcreek Township Hall. Lunch will be provided. Cost is $50 for OAA members and $75 for non-members.
