Many wild freshwater fish (trout being a good example)grow to a certain size depending on their diet, the conditions of the environment and their age.
You could, for example, stick a salmon in 60cm tank. It would eventually reach a point where it wouldn't physically be able to grow beyond the confines of the tank but it certainly wouldn't survive for very long at all.
I'm not sure whether what TetraLinz said (about organs continuing to grow) is correct. But this issue transcends animal welfare, it's cruel full stop.
