It depends on the fish. There is a fish that can survive years out of the water. It is the Lung Fish. I believe the fish is from Africa, in a desert area. It comes out feeds and breeds durring the rainy season, but buries its self when the water recedes.
Fish that evolved to survive in water with low oxygen content--stagnant puddles, for example--will last out of water a lot longer than, say, coral reef denizens, which are dependent on hyperoxygenated water (due to wave action on the reefs putting more air into solution in the water than still water can support).
I ask this because I am a photographer, and in a studio photo-shoot I don't want to kill a fish. But I need it live, and out of water, to flop around for the photo. ... What fish survives the longest out of water? ... Demon Wolf Empress · 8 years ago . 3. Thumbs up. 2. Thumbs down.
