MDWFP Biologist to Present Snakehead Program at VEC

Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks (MDWFP) fisheries biologist Nathan Aycock will present a program about snakehead fish at the Visitor Education Center (VEC) at 2 p.m. on Saturday, June 30. Aycock will discuss the invasive snakehead’s biology, current status, and how to distinguish it from Mississippi’s native bowfin. A question-and-answer session will follow the presentation.

The program is free with the price of admission. Admission is $2.50 for adults (ages 18-59) and $2.00 for youth (ages 3 -17) and adults over the age of 60. For additional information, call the VEC at (662) 563-8068.

The VEC is part of MDWFP’s North Mississippi Fish Hatchery, located at Exit 233 east of Interstate 55.
