Cows wouldn't have leg and joint problems if they were swimming o_O. So I don't see any weight issues by super-breeding fish.
Buffing the muscles means the fish will weigh more, it's swim bladder has evolved to carry a specific amount of weight. They'd have to increase that too or the fish would drown.
Sure. That makes sense. But if from birth they would have weighed more than usual, would their bladders be able to evolve in time? I mean, does it have to take a mutation in the species?
It would take a few generations for a an adaption to evolve naturally. As an example, the Brown snake here in Australia was under threat from the Cane Toad (especially toxic glands) when the snake ate it it would be poisoned and die. In the span of about 50 years, it evoled to a smaller head so it would be unable to eat the toad.

Maybe with a little encouragement, the fish wont have to wait that long.
Interesting. Thanks for the information. And that is not sarcastic if it sounds so. I just don't know how to reply when I have nothing to reply with.
Thanks for the chit chat =).
