  • Gas Exchange : A Important Bodily Process

    3474 Words  | 14 Pages

    Part A Gas exchange is a very important bodily process that many organisms undertake. Gas exchange involves the exchanges of gases, namely oxygen - needed for cell respiration - and carbon dioxide - a waste product produced by cell respiration - in order to continue producing energy. This process is important, as without it, we would not be able to undertake cell respiration, which is integral for producing adenosine triphosphate (ATP), a source of energy. Without gas exchange, cells would most

    from sluggish movement and emaciation. Large parasites measured from (14-32 mm length) were seen on gills or skin, with one to three parasite per fish, unilateral or bilateral occupying branchial cavity of the fish. parasite was highly attached leaving hemorrhagic necrotic ulcer or petechial hemorrhage.

Fish excrete in the sea which is important for the ecosystem

    it is harder to ventilate as it is far more thick. Because of this, fish must have a far more efficient gas exchange system which will allow them to obtain enough oxygen from the water. This is why fish have adapted to using the movements of their gill cover, swimming or the countercurrent flow to maintain the diffusion gradient of gases across the gas exchange surface. Whereas, mammals and terrestrial insects have tidal ventilation, which means that the air goes into the system the same way it comes
