+1 for clove is absorbed thru the fish's gills and the fish slowly goes to sleep, then you can freeze the body to make sure life has gone

I had to do this for one of my swam around in circles in the container for a few minutes then just floated on its side and I then froze it, and put it out in the trash.

You can use clove oil to anesthetize fish for surgery too, its the same when you have a toothache, rub clove oil on it and wham no feeling whatsoever (course the whole area goes numb too, but when its a toothache who cares ) The fish just goes numb and its brain slowly shuts down.
