What am I missing?


Am I missing something? Why are these fish still alive, they're not in water and presumably they're going to have to be out of water for some time..?

I'm not too sure how they do it, but read this elsewhere about a fish having surgery:

"To prep her for surgery, the vets at North Carolina State put her in a tub of water mixed with anesthetic until she stopped moving. Then they placed her on a shallow tray and prodded her to ensure she was sedated. During surgery they pumped water and anesthetic over her gills through a narrow rubber tube that fit inside her mouth."
