Removing the fish from the tank is the only way that I know of to conclusively prove that perspectives aren't being played with, and the fish is the size advertised. Actually, I imagine a plastic baggie is not bad - the fish cannot thrash around and hurt himself, and he is angled and held straight, meaning that the photo can be taken very quickly and then the fish released. The smooth surface of plastic should be more gentle on the slime coat than a wet paper towel.

They aren't going to be lingering over this process. These peoples' livelihoods are depending on them providing healthy, quality fish as advertised.

Or you could use a piece of string and just mark the point where the fish reaches to and then measure that against a ruler or measuring tape.

One way or another, I don't think the way of measuring fish pictures above is exactly humane.

Anyway, I really like this fish:

Not particularly in favor of that method but its the only way to really insure they aren't lying. You can mark string anywhere. And with giants, I'd be pretty mad if they advertised a 5 inch fish and I got a 2.5 inch non giant. Its not particularly nice to look at and probably stressful true but so are car rides, shipping abd a lot of other thinga but its effective to prove facts. Also out of aesthetic reasons I'd never touch that CT...
