.... Bimodal breather Air breathing fishes Acclimation Air exposure The majority of fish species are solely aquatic, extracting oxygen (O 2 ) from the water using the gills, but at least 49 families of fishes have the capacity to extract O 2 from air ( Graham, 1997 ). These air-breathing fishes can...

.... The skin, which also became more alkaline during air exposure, may also be involved in ammonia volatilization in air-exposed fish. This represents the first report of a fish using volatilization of NH 3 as part of a defence against ammonia toxicity. It can be concluded that the main strategy adopted by M...
