This is, without question, my favorite example of a Murano fish. I love the lines and depiction of the thrashing fish as they jump out of the water. It was designed by Flavio Poli for Seguso Vetri d' Arte circa 1937. It's a fairly large and heavy piece standing 15" tall and weighs 14 lbs. It is documented as "Fish in Sommerso a Bollicine" in Carl T. Gable's book, "Murano Magic: Complete Guide to Venetian Glass, Its History and Artists", page 65, fig. 4.23.
