Will ducks eat fish in my goldfish pond?
Not likely. In North America the only ducks that eat fish are divers that are found in larger, deeper bodies of water. The dabbling ducks of small bodies of water eat vegetation, invertebrates and the like. Although I don't know anything about the ducks of Australia, a quick look a this site
leads me to think the same will be true.
Ducks prefer plants and insects, so your fish should be safe!
