  • Before this stage they are so small that they need no gills to extract oxygen from the water.
  • They are capable of breathing under water, since their skin cells extract oxygen directly from the water.
  • Equipment was also developed to extract oxygen from sea water.
  • Many groups of freshwater fish extract oxygen from the air as well as from the water using a variety of different structures.
  • If your heart and lungs are in sound condition they will draw in air naturally and extract oxygen in proper quantities. Cited from The Doctrine and Practice of Yoga, by A. P. Mukerji
  • Like other fishes, sharks extract oxygen from water as it passes over their gills.
  • He features gill slits on the sides of his neck presumably allowing him to extract oxygen from the water.
  • Like other fish, sharks extract oxygen from seawater as it passes over their gills.
  • Their "hair" is actually external gill filaments used to extract oxygen from the water.
  • A number of fish have evolved so-called accessory breathing organs that extract oxygen from the air.
  • Hydrogen gas can also be used to extract oxygen from the lunar regolith, although the process is not very efficient.
  • These siphon water through the body in order to extract oxygen from the water using the gills and to feed on algae.
  • Fish must extract oxygen dissolved in water, not air, which has led to the evolution of gills and opercula.
  • Their lungs extract oxygen more efficiently than normal unmodified humans, allowing them to exert themselves without getting short of breath, or function at high altitudes.
  • The skin of the larva is thin and vascularised, allowing it to extract oxygen from this stream of water.
  • Those that are able to breathe while not swimming breathe by using their spiracles to force water over their gills, thereby allowing them to extract oxygen from the water.
  • Many air breathing freshwater teleosts use ABOs to effectively extract oxygen from air while maintaining functions of the gills.
  • Aerial respiration is the 'gulping' of air at the surface of water to directly extract oxygen from the atmosphere.
  • These organs extract oxygen from the air, analogous to the vertebrate lungs.
