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.

This just in Harvey:

Vivid head honcho Steven Hirsch is offering Harvey $200K for Ribeye to appear in a SEX TAPE.

Don't worry, we'll make it look like it was stolen from your office Harv....

It was cruel that he was not in an aquarium with proper filtration. Not funny!

The bottle clearly reads, Two drops of propofol per gallon of water. Dr. Conrad Fishey could not read either!

Look at the algae growth in that tank. Looks like the TMZ Staff couldn't do the fish the small favor of routinely cleaning his tank.

Poor lil fish forced to live in those nasty water conditions. Y'all should be given the Mike Vick treatment for animal cruelty.

Ribeye hadn't twittered in sometime. I feared he wasn't feeling well. So long buddy, you will be missed.
