Heli in toxic shock from the concentrated brine

During the second episode of the series documentary Blue Planet II, cameras recorded an eel dipped several times in a puddle brine (water with high salt).

The eel will be poisoned by excessive salt and the presence of other toxic elements (methane and other hydrocarbons) and fall into toxic shock. Eventually he will be lucky he manages to escape. But many of the fish are not doing as we see from their corpses, which are concentrated around the edges of the puddle.
