Do you have a small scale pond and want to create a fisherman’s paradise, but don’t know where to start? Do you have a small pond that gets scummy at certain points during the year and you don’t understand why? Well we are here to help answer those questions and more! Currituck County Center of the North Carolina Cooperative Extension is hosting a “Small Scale Pond Management” class on Thursday, September 29 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Currituck County Center located at 120 Community Way, Barco, NC 27917. Area Extension Aquaculture Agent, Steve Gable, along with other extension personnel, will be presenting information on the basics of pond management including aspects of water quality, aquatic weed identification, pond systems science, and fish species identification. The first part of the class will be an informative lecture, which will then be followed by a hands-on portion outside the facility at a local pond where attendants will be able to put the pond management concepts into practice. Attendants will have the opportunity to use sampling equipment to examine the pond’s water quality and the resident fish species, as well as, discuss a pond management plan to help reach particular goals.

The class is free, but registration is requested. You may register online by visiting or you may also register by calling the Currituck County Extension Center. If you have questions or would like further information regarding this class, please contact Sarah Watts at 252-232-2262 or at
