    Thats crazy never seen them move like that before its because there are frozen on the fish boats which is more of a warehouse and the nerves dont have time to relax before freezing so when thawed it does this

    He obviously put lemon juice on them causing the nerves to become excited. Same thing as putting salt on frog legs so they "hop around". Nothing alive about it, still freaky though.

    The nerve signal, or action potential, is a coordinated movement of sodium and potassium ions across the nerve cell membrane. Here’s how it works:

    1. As we discussed, the inside of the cell is slightly negatively charged (resting membrane potential of -70 to -80 mV).
    2. A disturbance (mechanical, electrical, or sometimes chemical) causes a few sodium channels in a small portion of the membrane to open.
    3. Sodium ions enter the cell through the open sodium channels. The positive charge that they carry makes the inside of the cell slightly less negative (depolarizes the cell).
    4. When the depolarization reaches a certain threshold value, many more sodium channels in that area open. More sodium flows in and triggers an action potential. The inflow of sodium ions reverses the membrane potential in that area (making it positive inside and negative outside — the electrical potential goes to about +40 mV inside)

    Could just be a muscle reaction. Not really thought out movement (since it doesn`t have a head), more like invulnerably movement.

    That`s just my explanation, otherwise, I have no idea

    It`s probably the charge off the foil, or she put lemon juice or salt on it.

    Also, she may just not have gutted it right. I remember when my mom gutted a fish and she didn`t take out the spine right just to freak me out. It started flopping around and I screamed my lungs out. XD

    Also, this is the same thing that will happen with snakes, frogs, etc.

    If you cut the head off a rattlesnake, it can still bite down on you because of the nerves still being twitchy.

    This is an eel people. Even after a head is decapitated there is "energy" aka ATP in the body that can be released triggering muscle spasms. For example: after a chicken`s head is cut off, it can still roll around and poo.

    They are called nerves, I see lemons around. I would bet my entire bank account that she put lemons on the fish, they hit the nerves, and sparked a spasm. Basic logic and knowledge for anyone who actually went to school and paid attention.

    This is also why you don`t ever cut anything in half, i.e. Rattlesnake. Cut the head off, otherwise you can still get bit from shock to their nerves.

    Not true. At all. A fish has a very complex nerve system and can feel pain as well as any other animal with a spine and brain. Including humans. Welcome to the wide world of doing some research instead of relying on popular myths and misconceptions.
