Why do fish bleed so much from their gills?

    Most fish bleed from their gills when the levels of ammonia in the water are too high. Fish are very susceptible to ammonia poisoning so when levels are above normal the fish suffer. Ammonia burns the gills of the fish so that they start bleeding.

    Fish do so because the gills have accumulation of blood. The gills serve as the lung and so deoxygenated blood flows thereto for oxygen.
