Mergansers can do some serious damage. I shot one years ago during duck season and it had a few baby bass in its gullet. We typically have quite a few flocks that frequent our pond in the fall and I have always worried about their damage to any of the smaller Brook trout. I have never seen mergansers feed on an 8 inch trout but have seen cormorants do major damage to stocked trout. They can destroy a fishery entirely of they show up. Not sure what damage loons can do.
