Gills in Air
Is it possible for a fish to absorb any Oxygen from the
air at all? I have been told that it was, and would like some clarification.
Gills are more efficient than lungs in taking oxygen out of water or
air. The catch is that the gill filaments are so delicate they dry out
very quickly in air and become permanently nonfunctional.
