Not likely.  I know of thousanbds of shipments by hundreds of people and 
never once has anyone ended a story with "and they were smeared around the 
surface of the bag like they'd been left in a microwave and turned on".  If 
doesn't happen.  The pressure difference, if there is any, may cause some of 
the air in the bag to seep through into the cargo bay, but nobody's ever 
gotten exploded fish.  Well maybe flight 200, over Locharbie, but the fish on 
that shipnment never arrived at all, dead OR alive.
