If it is a fresh water lake perhaps piranha would thrive?

It is a mix of fresh water and sea water as it is connected to canals that are connected to the ocean

Does the lake level fluctuate with the tides?

Then there would be inflow and outflow and the "lake" would be brackish water and a littoral zone. With proper management, a non-trivial requirement, the lakes and channels could be a significant bio-diversity resource. Great effort and expense has gone into even partially re-creating such littoral zones in coastal California. They play a vital role in the marine ecosystem as spawning grounds and places for juveniles of various species to grow. But this will be compromised if the entrances are through marinas, which can be quite polluted with hydrocarbons.
