Eating Fish That Dies in Water

question| Selling fish that are cultivated in fish farms usually involves transferring the fish from the main tank at the farm to a specially-equipped vehicle carrying a water tank whose oxygen level is monitored and replenished by a specific machine designed for this purpose, and from the vehicle they are then transferred to a similar water tank in the store or shop in which they are sold to customers. That is, all precautions are taken to ensure that the fish remain alive until they reach the customers. Now, if a fish dies in the water tank, is it canonically edible?
answer| Although it is canonically pure, it is nevertheless canonically inedible.
