Fish can "drown" in air because they are unable to extract oxygen from it and breathe properly. They can also drown water if they unable to extract oxygen due to pollution or gill injury.
Despite popular belief, yes! Fish can drown! If the oxygen in their water runs out, they will stop being able to breathe, just like humans would suffocate without air. They can also drown if their gills are damaged, poor fish!
