See the tuck on the bottom line? Healthy fish have a slightly distended belly.

i've seen enough, and am cynical enough to assume that fish was somehow injured by fishing activity. He may have a hook or some other tackle in its gut that is preventing it from eating or keeping down its food.

what a shame...
