Respiration physiology – the
machinery of fish breathing
This part will give a short overview of the respiratory system in
fish. In the lab exercise in this activity you will be able to test
how flow affects the exchange of gases, and get a better understanding
of the problems fish encounter in order to get oxygen from water.
The assignment – find out the answers!
- How are the fish gills
constructed, and how does this intricate machinery actually work?
- What is important for the uptake
- How is blood and water pumped over the
Let's investigate these questions in the lesson that follows >>
