I think fish drown when they are knocked unconscious or pierced through the lung.

Unfortunately, because of the way the animation system was set out, the mouth will allways move down, smashing in the neck, during those animations. The only thing you can realy do to fix it is change your creature by moving it's mouth part, either somewhere else on the body, or moving the entire head forward, giving it a less humanoid appearance.

I hate it too. The worst one I had, the entire head dissapeared into the body on some animations. :-\
