Some photos from our pond clinic held Thursday evening

About 40 people attended the clinic, held at the EARS research station near Belle Valley north of Wolf Run State Park. The evening began with a fish shocking demonstration by the ODNR staff from Salt Fork. Attendees were able to see what type fish are living in the pond. The fish are not harmed by this procedure.

Later in the evening, Guernsey/Noble OSU extension educator Clif Little explained how to deal with weeds in ponds. He also talked about stocking the pond with fish, and discussed the various fish species available.
