How long can a fish live out of water?


well me and my girlfriend went fishing today. after she caught her first fish( shoulda saw her face ) she was screaming at me to take it off the hook seconds after its out of the water. i figured they can for like 1-2 minutes. any opinions?

Probably depends on the species, a few minutes does seem to make them a little stupid and shocky when they go back in but they snap out of it pretty darn quick

I think we need more values to plug into the equation.
like:
what time of day?
was the sun shinning?
what kind of fish?
how long does it take to take the hook out?
if 2 trains leave the station 137 mile apart towards each other on the same track
train A is going 37 mph and train B is going 43 mph
what time is lunch?
