I've thought about the fish route. There are a number of fish in the
pond/lake, but we just moved here and I don't know exactly what they are.
Some are quite large and I haven't had the time, yet, to catch some to see
if they are the variety that will eat anything else I put in there, or if
they are primarily herbivores. Has anyone had luck with tilapia in a
pond/lake like this? The waterway is very seasonal and the depth fluctuates
from 3' in the Florida dry season (winter) to almost 10' in the summer.

I know what caused it, and I know it can be a good thing for the water
fish, but it is everywhere. Is there anything I can use to abate it a
little? Natural? Herbicide? Eat it?

The pond is approximately 3/4 acre, has run-off from the neighborhood
(trying to take care of that) and the air temperature reaches 80-85F

Thanks in advance.

Depending on the type of duckweed both koi and goldfish will eat it. But
you have a small lake, not a pond. That would take a lot of fish....
