Why do fishes die as soon as they are brought out of water to land?
Asked by | 12th Jun, 2011, 05:10: PM
The respiratory organs of fish are gills. Gills are capable of absorbing dissolved oxygen from water. But they cannot use the atmospheric oxygen for respiration. Hence fish die when taken out of water.
