Fishes taken out of water die although there is no more oxygen in atmosphere. Explain.

The respiratory organs of fishes are gills. Gills are designed to absorb oxygen only from water. Hence they can survive in water. Gills cannot absorb atmospheric oxygen, hence fish die when taken out of water. The amount of oxygen in atmosphere is not important in this case.
