In some countries people like to eat animals that are still alive (e.g. dancing squid / octopus). Clearly these animals are not kosher, but it is also possible to eat kosher-types fish that are either still alive, or that may appear to be alive (e.g. still moving).
1) The Noahide laws (when translated to English) prohibit eating flesh taken from an animal while it is still alive. But, are fish considered to be animals in this case? 2) According to my research, the act of removing fish from water qualifies as slaughtering them. But, removing fish from water doesn't actually kill it.
So, is it kosher to eat a live fish? There's a mention that it is kosher here: Why do Fish not need Shechita? , but there's limited discussion on the matter.
edit- to restate my question: Is it kosher to eat a live fish?
