Woah...

It's gotta be dead though, all its organs have been removed. It's like when chickens run round for a while after you cut their throat.

I've seen 30lb tuna filet right out of the water and the same thing happens, they'll flop around for a while without any meat left on them.
I wouldn't say it's really "alive", just the nervous system still running for a bit longer.

Doesn't really seem that crazy to me. Haven't you ever tossed still-twitching catfish fillets into a fryer while watching the head attempt to breathe on the cutting board next to it?

I cleaned a largemouth Bass once while it was still pretty much alive. They move for quite a while after their dead.

If you look closer...none of its organs have been removed. It has had a "filet" removed from each side.

hmm.. it looks like all its organs are still there, and its very much alive. Im sure it will die pretty quickly, but it definitly looked alive.

Those stupid youtubers- they should be filleted for their inane racist remarks.
So I guess ONE fish condemns an entire culture- just wow!:disgust:

The brain is still attached to the spinal cord and gills. All that was removed was muscle and digestive tract.

Edit: Maybe just muscle.
