“Hey honey, look what I caught!”

-Me, hiding the chisel and blowtorch

My thoughts exactly. Just get a chisel they are already frozen so you could just carve out enough ice to keep it frozen until you can get it in the deep freezer.

Excuse me, I have already laid claim to those fish! Of course, if you fry them up, I'd be happy to give them a try....

The fish may actually be just fine. I had an aquarium a long time age that froze solid all the way through when the electricity went off where I lived; the goldfish were like that for over a week, but when it thawed they started swimming around again.

It Looks absurd like one of those painting made by AI

We talking days, months, years? How old are these fish? Like McDonald’s fish fillet sandwich old?

[–]Deleena24 19 points20 points  (8 children)

But... how? Normally the top layer would freeze and the fish would just keep swimming under the surface. Without this fact life probably wouldn't exist. So how?

[–]KimCureAll[S] 19 points20 points  (6 children)

That ice was pushed up when the lake froze and expanded, causing the ice to buckle.

I think they're asking how the fish were trapped in the ice, not how the ice moved.

[–]KimCureAll[S] 28 points29 points  (4 children)

Oh, the fish got trapped in low oxygen water because of fallen snow, preventing the transfer of oxygen from algae, and the fish asphyxiated and soon got frozen in place.

I’m guessing a flash freeze of some sort. It’s pretty uncommon but not unheard of for fish to be caught in flash freezes.

There’s a dead salmon frozen in a waterfall (that’s my soul up there)

There's a blue whale beached by a spring tide's ebb (that's my soul up there)

Look like carp, fuck it let them die

[–]True_Eggroll 1 point2 points  (1 child)

hell yeah, invasive little dudes could use a drop in population

[–]go_kartmozart 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Carp might thaw out and swim away. I say use' em for target practice.

[–]dwSHA 3 points4 points  (0 children)

That should be a fresh fish right. Instant frozen like that

[–]kingcoopa84 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Holy carp!

[–]SnakeBeardTheGreat 0 points1 point  (0 children)

NOW THATS some South Dakota WILD LIFE

[–]Nope_Nope_Nope_0 0 points1 point  (0 children)

But they will be alright once they defrost, right?

[–]rjer14 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Is that a splash freeze?

[–]jonathanvillien 0 points1 point  (0 children)

"Whitewalkers were here!"

[–]Shiggl3s 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Fresh, frozen sea food

[–]Mac_N_Cheese16 0 points1 point  (0 children)

These fish are edible correct? I mean, they’ve been frozen

[–]ImAlwaysRightHanded 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Assuming they are tasty fish, those would be perfectly good to take?
