Scientists Successfully Implant Lungs into Fish

Scientists have successfully created a goldfish that is capable of breathing atmospheric air. Using advanced microsurgery techniques, researchers at the New South Wales Veterinary Institute implanted a pair of frog lungs into the fish, which survived out of water for 2 hours.

The lungs were connected to the respiratory surface that were naturally found in the gills. The fish was able to conduct gas exchange through the lungs instead of the gills, which allowed it to breath in a terrestrial environment. A very humid chamber was constructed for the goldfish so that it did not dehydrate.

SCIENCE ISN’T ABOUT WHY IT’S ABOUT WHY NOT

i don’t think you guys understand how important this is if we’re able to put lungs in fish it means we may be able to put gills in humans which means we’re one step closer to becoming mermaids

this scares me like what if someday a whole bunch of fish have lungs in them and they hated the surgery and they end up rebelling and killing us i mean i don’t know about you but if I saw a herd of fish running at me i would drop everything and freaking run

they gave them lungs not legs they’d be like fucking magikarp flopping around on the ground being useless pieces of crap

oh my god
