Hello,

Inkscape is designed for vector graphics, and thus a bitmap editor (such as the Gimp) would be more appropriate to handle a jpeg file.
Of course, if you have the source image (in a vector -SVG, AI, etc. - format), you can import it in Inkscape and remove the unwanted parts of the drawing. With the JPEG file, you have to mask the fish with another shape and export to bitmap again (note that Inkscape exports bitmaps in PNG only).

Regards.

Can you help with this problem?
