How Do Fish Adapt to Their Environment?

Answer

There are many ways fish can generally adapt to their environments. While evolution and other adaptation tactics allow for true genetic change, fish have scales and skin that can block out cold water, and gils to filter the oxygen from water. Their bodies can change this process depending on temperature of water, pressure, etc. Most salt water fish can live in fresh water, but NOT vice versa.
