The researchers studied the development of gills in rainbow trout larvae. Their experiment suggests that it is likely that fish evolved gills for the primary purpose of regulating the chemicals in their bodies.

I know this sounds terrible: fish are beautiful and interesting, and I'm thankful that we haven't poisoned all the fish with waste in toxic seas--but to me, they're still lunch.

Noted Sophie, interesting; thanks.
Lisa, I have to confess that I sometimes "waffle" about eating fish. It is the only meat I have ever considered eating in the last 20yrs, but I just can't. For me it is because I have seen how they struggle for life, just like us, and they are treated so horribly in the "industry", along with any other sea creatures who happen to get in the way. That is just what I have had to decide, because of my personal aversion to anything dying because of me. Many people still consider fish "lunch"!
