I see a lot of noise in the photo, which probably means your ISO is too high. It's hard to get movement in low light with a low ISO, but if you can add more light - temporarily just for the shot - then that is how you can achieve it. The more light the better as far as motion photography is concerned!
Flash photo's are never the best quality either, unless you have one of those large flash unit that shoots the light up and bounces it off the walls or ceiling. Typical camera flashes just shoot light forward, which creates poor lighting distribution, and you can just see the difference in how professional the photo looks.I will stay out of the technical camera jargon as I know nothing about that. But one comment--you should not use flash when photographing fish. The flash is seriously stressful to fish.
Actually there is a trick to that. Use a low ISO and small aperture with reduced lighting so that if you took the picture without the flash it would come out completely black. The flash duration is microseconds so it will freeze the picture even at slow shutter speeds.If the subject moves or if you move when taking the picture with a slow shutter speed, the image will be blurred. Most professionals use a tripod and cable release to keep the camera still when using slow shutter speeds. However, this doesn't work when photographing fish.
