A piscivorous dinosaur

The Baryonyx It's one of the few known piscivorous dinosaurs, adapted for this purpose.

Thus, we find that its snout is long and low, its jaws long and narrow, and an enormous number of serrated teeth, twice as many as theropods usually have. This, added to its long claw, served them when it came to "fishing" for their prey.

It's very probable that have waded in shallow water to pierce fish with their claws.
