Clarity problem

I was called to look at a pond the other day. This is my first experience with any water features. So any help would be great. The pond in question is in the area of 2500 gallons or so. There are more then 50 fish in this little pond. The owner has done little or nothing to this pond. Other then add too many fish and to many plants. Just my thoughts there. They have tried several filters with no results. It is filled by well water or rain water. Just a rubber liner.

Pic one is of the pond from a distance.

Pic two is of the filter they tried with no results. They are using a "natural filter" so to speak. Looked like a barrel with a rubber liner with some plants in the barrel.

Pic three is of the UV light they tried.

Pic four is of some of the fish.

Pic five well you know what they are.

Don't know. Water looks good in the pics.

I don't think it's a 2500 pond though. Maybe 1000.
