What effect do pinioned swans have on a small lake or pond
By:Rob
Date: 5 August 2015

Since pinioned Trumpeter swans were added to our small lake (aprox 3 acres) our huge population of channel catfish, frogs, crawdads and turtles have disappeared and the water is not near as clear as it once was. I think that the swans are preventing everything from reproducing. Am I right? Wrong?

Thanks,
