Welcome to APC!
Yes, it is possible. Some species of fish lay adhesive eggs on plants, and these could survive being shipped on wet plants. And a tiny fish could simply stick to the plants accidentally, or survive in a small amount of water in the bag.
Chances that it will be a problem are low, especially if there is only one! You could take it out, but my curiosity would make me keep it just to find out what it is, LOL.
