אֵין שׁוֹחֲטִין לְתוֹךְ יַמִּים וּנְהָרוֹת, שֶׁלֹּא יֹאמְרוּ, לְשַׂר שֶׁל יָם הוּא שׁוֹחֵט; וְלֹא לְתוֹךְ הַכֵּלִים, שֶׁלֹּא יֹאמְרוּ, מְקַבֵּל הַדָּם לְזָרְקוֹ לֶאֱלִילִים; וְאִם יֵשׁ בִּכְלִי מַיִם, שֶׁאָז אֵין הַדָּם רָאוּי לִזְרִיקָה, אִם הֵם צְלוּלִים לֹא יִשְׁחֹט בּוֹ, שֶׁלֹּא יֹאמְרוּ לַצּוּרָה הַנִּרְאֵית בַּמַּיִם שׁוֹחֵט; וְאִם הֵם עֲכוּרִים, מֻתָּר; וְכֵן אִם יֵשׁ בַּכְּלִי עָפָר, מֻתָּר לִשְׁחֹט בְּתוֹכוֹ.

Seif 3

We don’t slaughter into the ocean or rivers, lest people say, that one slaughtered for the deity of the sea, we also don’t slaughter into vessels lest people say that one slaughtered to collect blood to throw it at idols; and if there is a vessel of water, so that the blood (that gets mixed) is not fit for throwing, if the vessels are clear we don’t slaughter into it, lest people say that one is offering a sacrifice to an image reflected by the water; and if (the water) is murky it’s permitted; and if there are ashes (or dirt) in the vessel, it is permitted to slaughter in it.
