Shouldn't it be 물고기 ??

물고기 refers to live fish. 생선 is the fish meat for eating.

But that still doesn't explain why this is wrong. Both should work here since there is no context stating otherwise.

Is the teacher red?

선생님 = teacher, 생선 = fish

생선 vs 선생 :-)

Lol. Not quite. Teacher is 선생님. 생선 is fish.

Would "이 생선은 빨간색이에요?" work?
