Ribeye the Fish -- once known as "The Snarkiest Fish in the Z" -- has died ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to the situation tell us ... one of the TMZ staffers found Ribeye floating in his tank ... unresponsive to various taps on the glass.

The fish -- only a few months old -- was given a burial at sea ... via the toilet in the men's bathroom.

Harvey Levin released a statement saying, "He was a good fish ... he will be missed."

Harvey's asst. Tyler adds, "Not much of a swimmer though." R.I.P.

Ribeye sleeps with the fishes! Well, unless he was paying attention when Harvey ran 'Finding Nemo' for all the slackers on a slow day. In that case...Ribeye took the long journey through the sewer pipes of LA and now resides happily somewhere in the waste-management system.

I notice you've desposed of the body before the authorities arrived. Who bagged up the bottles of propofol? How long after the body was discovered did you wait to call 911? Is it true that his tour manager wanted to get him tested on Monday after reports of odd behavior in Hollywood over the weekend?
