What would happen if you placed a salt water fish in fresh water?

    Most freshwater fish would die if placed in salt water.  The salinity in the water would cause the fish to lose weight as water exits their bodies and eventually die.  About 2% of fish can make a switch between fresh water and salt water at some point in their lives.  Some examples are eels and salmon.
