Fish

Q:

Salaam Alaykum,

As we buy fishes from markets, where they are brought after two or three days after being caught and we are also told that when fishermen throw their nets and catch fish, along with the live fishes, there might be the dead ones also.

A:

Waalaykum salam..

To your Query Ayatullah Sistani's office replied:
Since you have no certainty that the fishes were dead, in that case you are allowed to use them without much worry. This is emphasised more if the fishermen you buy from is a Muslim.

I hope this was useful
