Well I'm impressed - it doesn't seem like most people have the stomach for doing something like that.

Yeah I know I couldn't have done it but then all my fish are pets and if I remember correctly these people bred masses of goldfish so they did it 'for the good of the stud' so as to speak in-case it was something contagious that could affect the others.

I work on a fishing boat and examine the stomaches of the fish we catch - its definitely something that I would do also, my fish are not pets so i wouldn't think twice about dissecting them. too many people just assume that something is so, often the most convenient explanation. Really when you think about all the things that could cause a fish to die, there aren't that many that we would be able to identify as a cause of death.

Yes cause of death is not something that can be readily confirmed just by looking at the exterior of the fish. Sure some common diseases have pretty obvious physical symptoms but considering the fact that fish can get everything from white spot to thyroid cancer means that at times further investigation such as post mortem is necessary if the true cause of death is to be determined.
