Take 2.
One way the fish and the human are similar are that they both have the same mouths.In the pictures you can see that they both have a mouth.Both mouths are part of the respiratory system.

Air flows from bronchioles into millions of tiny alveoli. Destruction of these by cigarette smoking causes this causes the alveoli to go away slowly.

Similarities: the fish gills also have Capillaries and alveoli
Differences: the human lungs cannot get oxygen from water but fish lungs can suck air from water. Also the fish lungs will not be able to withstand the gravity on land thus it will turn a blob of useless flesh while the humane lungs can withstand the gravity.

Simular things are that both respitory systems get oxygen (O2) to the body and get rid of carbon dioxcide (CO2) . The mouth is part of both respitory systems.
Diffrences are that the fish get thier oxygen from air molicules in the water while us humans get oxygen from air.

Tiffany
05/28/2013 1:12pm

I got my information from the fish diagram and what we learned in class. You could see that in the close up view of a thin plate, that there is blood vesles that carry O2 and CO2.

Ben
05/28/2013 12:54pm

One way we are different are that we have lungs and they have gills.

Evidence: In the picture you can see that the fish does not have lungs but in the picture of the human you can see that we do have lungs.

The respiratory system of a fish and the respiratory system of a human have both similarities and differences.

I see that in the human lung, at the end of the alveolar are capillaries and the oxygen and the carbon dioxide move in opposite directions. In the fish picture, they also have capillaries and the labels says that oxygen and carbon dioxide move in different ways, too.

Aimee
05/28/2013 1:03pm

(I forgot to add on a sentence..)
But a difference is that all humans have lungs, but fish only have gills.

Matthew Lai
05/28/2013 12:56pm

The respiratory systems are similar because they both have blood capillaries which which take in o2 and releases it as co2.

Matthew Lai
05/28/2013 1:13pm

Evidence for my claim: In the picture with the fish thin plate you can see the o2 going to the capillaries and co2 going out. Just like in the human respiratory system which has capillaries which does the same thing as the ones for fish.

Matthew Lai
05/28/2013 8:07pm

A difference is that humans have lungs and fish have gills. Also fish take in water through the mouth but the nose is not part of the system. Unlike our system which has a nose and mouth to inhale o2. Another difference was that fish have to filter the water for oxygen, unlike humans that can just directly inhale the oxygen therefore humans do not need gills.


Evidence:In the pictures you see the human has lungs and the fish has gills. In the picture with the fish you see the water going into the mouth and in the article it stated "the nostrils are used only for a sense of smell, and play no part in respiration." But in the article on the human respiratory system it talks about how you can use both your mouth and nose to inhale o2. Finally in the article about fish it explains how fish need to filter water and if they were on land their gillswould be useless because they could take oxygen from the air.

Allan

People might buy it because they want to supply their fish with enough oxygen to live and stay active.

Ananya
05/28/2013 1:02pm

Both fishes and humans have a type of "filter" in their body. The fish have gills while humans have lungs. In the picture it shows the water going into the fishes mouth and coming out if its gills, like a water filter!
In the article about the human body it says that humans breathe through their mouth(or their nose) and it goes into the lungs and then comes out as carbon dioxide.

Nandini
05/28/2013 1:02pm

The respiratory systems are similar because they both have blood capillaries which take in o2 and release co2.
Evidence: If you see in the pictures, both human and fish have blood capillaries.

Shanan
05/28/2013 1:03pm

A smilarity is: Just like us, fish have capillaries and alveoli, so that means that their respiratory system gives oxygen to their circulatory system just like we do. In the article about the human respiratory system, it says that we have lots of alveoli to give oxygen to our blood. (I honestly don't know how many alveoli fish have, but I know they have them from the article we read earlier today), in the image we looked at, it shows the capillaries that fish have, so I know that they have them.

1} Both the human's and fish's really tiny parts of their Respiratory System include capillaries.
2} Human's have lungs, and fish have gill arches.

Matthew Brown
05/28/2013 1:03pm

similarities: Both the humane respiratory system and the fish respiratory system breathes in o2 and they both release co2.

Deven
05/28/2013 1:03pm

One way fish have different resporitory systems than us is that we breathe and smell though are noes, fish just smell. The reason is the picture should O2 going though the fish's mouth but not though the noes.

Deven
05/28/2013 1:13pm

One way that fish's resporitory system is the same as ours is that they breathe in O2 and breathe out CO2, the only difference is that they get the O2 from water we get it from air.

Deven
05/28/2013 8:13pm

Continued.
I got this from the picture showing O2 going in the mouth and gills, then the CO2 goes out the gills.

Tiffany
05/28/2013 1:03pm

Some fish need more oxygen than others. The fish that need alot of oxygen use the oxygen pump so that the water can get more oxygen for the fish to use. It makes it easier to breath in O2 for it's body.

Tiffany
05/28/2013 5:17pm

In the article from Ms.O, It said that gold fish are fine because they swin near the surface. But not all fishes are like that, so some need the oxygen pump.

Ananya
05/28/2013 1:04pm

A fish owner might need a oxygen pump to not let the water run out of oxygen. If there was no oxygen then the fish would die.

Ananya
05/28/2013 1:06pm

A way that a human respiratory system and a fish respiratory system are different: Humans use their nose for breathing AND smelling. Fish only use their nose for smelling.

Dhatri
05/28/2013 1:07pm

The human and fish respiratory systems both have some similarities and differences. I think that one of the similarities that they have is that both systems have capillaries that take in oxygen and release carbon dioxide. When you are looking at a human’s respiratory system, you can see how the capillaries wrap around the alveoli, and it says that they suck out the oxygen from the alveoli. In the fish’s picture, you can see how the oxygen is coming to the capillary, and how the capillary spits out the carbon dioxide. That’s one way how both respiratory systems are similar.

Aimee
05/28/2013 1:08pm

I think people might buy the oxygen pump for their fish so that the fish might breath better, because in the article that we read earlier, it said that some fish don't have as good as a breathing system as other fish. Goldfish are fine because they stay near the surface of the water where a lot of oxygen mixes with the water. But some other fish might need more oxygen because they don't stay near the surface and they don,t get enough oxygen sometimes. The oxygen pump will pump oxygen in the parts where the fish are and then give the fish more oxygen.

Akshay
05/28/2013 1:09pm

One way a fish and a human's respiratory system is that the oxygen moves from the air sacs to the capillaries and carbon dioxide goes out the opposite way.
One way the fish and human respiratory system is different is that on a fish's gill arches, there are gill filaments. And on the gill filaments are thin plates. On the side of a thin plate are capillaries, where oxygen(o2) goes in and carbon dioxide(co2) goes out. And humans have capillaries that are located on alveoli in the lungs. The air goes to the capillaries by the the alveoli, and carbon dioxide goes the opposite way.

Akshay
05/28/2013 6:40pm

Evidence

My evidence I got came from the fish picture and the website about the respiratory system. For the reason why the fish and human respiratory systems are similar, this is my evidence. In the fish picture I saw the oxygen going to the capillaries and the carbon dioxide going out. On the website I read that the alveoli have capillaries on them. The capillaries take in oxygen in and send carbon dioxide the other way.

My evidence for why the fish and human respiratory system is different is that Fish have capillaries located on their gills, and humans have capillaries located in their lungs.

Akshay
05/28/2013 6:52pm

Oxygen pump

Why someone would buy an oxygen pump is that if they have a fast fish, and one day it's very sluggish, and very tired, and it's gasping at the surface a lot. This means the fish needs more oxygen. So the person might buy an oxygen pump. Really fast fish need lots of oxygen to survive.( like I mentioned before )

These are the reasons why I think someone might buy an oxygen pump.

Solen
05/28/2013 1:09pm

In both of the images it showed oxygen going into the capillaries and carbon dioxide was traveling away from the capillaries. Therefore , one way they are similar is capillaries exchange carbon dioxide for oxygen. One way they are different is, in the human respiratory system, as it said in website, oxygen from the air sacs went into the capillaries, but in the fish article it said that the oxygen was extracted from the water and went to the capillaries.

Gina M. Moy
05/28/2013 1:10pm

A person needs to buy an oxygen pump for their fish because the fish need oxygen in their water. Fish need oxygen from the water because they can't take oxygen from the surface. Only whales con do that. The oxygen pump is there to help the fish get its oxygen.

Chloe
05/28/2013 1:10pm

In class I learned that in the respiratory system, the lungs have little alveoli, and over the alveoli are little capillaries. The capillaries suck out the oxygen from the alveoli sack. From the image of the fish, I learned that the fish open their mouths, their gills close. When their gills close, the water from the mouth goes to their alveoli, and the capillaries suck out the air from the water. When the gills open again, the water goes out. So the human and fish respiratory system both have alveloi, and capillaries. If humans went underwater and tried to breath underwater, we would not be able to get the water out if our body's. I say this because We would need gills to let the water come out of our body's.

Jordan
05/28/2013 1:11pm

similarities:We both have airways in the Respiratory System.
Diierentes:We might have airways in the same place but they do come from differet places in the Respiratory System uors comes from the mouth and the fishes come from the gills.

Matthew Brown

Richard
05/28/2013 1:12pm

Fish and humans are similar with their respiratory system because they both have alveoli and capillaries that help them breath. Another similarity is that both take in oxygen and take out CO2.
The differences are that fish can take in oxygen from the water that their are swimming in. Humans can't take out water from a liquid with oxygen.
Question: How does a fish's lung look like ?

Sai
05/28/2013 1:13pm

Similarities
There are many ways that a fishes Respiratory System is similar, but I will share only one reason that has evidence from the picture.My claim is that a human and fish have similar way of getting oxygen. My evidence is on the fish picture (The close up of a thin plate) it has a picture of the blood capillaries taking oxygen from the gills and in The inside the Human Body article it says that capillaries cover the Alveoli so they can suck the oxygen and that is very similar with the fishes way of getting oxygen.


Sai
05/28/2013 4:43pm

Different
My claim is that a fish and a humans have different ways of getting oxygen. My evidence from the Inside the Human Body website is that humans can breathe in only two ways which are using their mouth or nose. In the fish picture you can see that the only way the fish could get oxygen is by the gills but it would not be the mouth because the mouth only exhales the water, so humans have two ways of getting oxygen and there is only one way a fish can get oxygen.

Nandini
05/28/2013 1:13pm

Humans have lungs, and fish instead of lungs they have gill arches.

Nandini
05/28/2013 5:19pm

Evidence:In the article, it states that our lungs hold oxygen when we breathe in- the oxygen goes into our mouth/nose, down our trachea, and into our lungs. In the image of a fish's respiratory system it shows an arrow that goes into the fish's mouth, and into its gills.

Maxwell #24
05/28/2013 1:13pm

Claim: Fish breathe through gills to get to separate oxygen from water, while humans breathe air into their lungs to get the oxygen they need.

Evidence: Fish don’t have lungs because lungs can’t separate oxygen from water, but they have gills to separate oxygen from water. Some fish can’t breathe on land because there is no water to get oxygen from.
Humans can’t breathe under water because their lungs can’t separate oxygen from water, our lungs can only breathe air directly from the atmosphere.

Maxwell #24
05/28/2013 7:42pm

Fish need an oxygen pump because the used water don't contain oxygen, and the oxygen pump is bringing oxygen to the water without oxygen. It is like how alveoli brings oxygen to the capillaries.

Maxwell #24
05/28/2013 7:44pm

Well, the water contains oxygen (H2O), but the water can't be re-inhaled by the fish.

Emma

Amna

SIMILARITIES: Fish and we humans have capillaries and alveoli so then there Respiratory System gives oxygen to the circulatory system like us humans.
EVIDENCE: In the picture of the fish’s respiratory system it showed that the fish had blood capillaries.

Thejas
05/28/2013 1:14pm

I think that fish and humans, even though their only relation is that they are in the animal kingdom, have something in relation at least. Well, a little research can give you a lot of information.The fish respiratory system and the human respiratory system both have gills, except the humans lost their gills at a extremely young age, and the fish kept their gill slits. Fish also have their own form of "asthma", because they have a less effective pumping system. But here, its in the entire species. That would be like your entire family having asthma!

Solen
05/28/2013 1:15pm

Someone might buy an oxygen pump so that the fish tank will be filled with oxygen and the fish that might require more oxygen might need to have the fish pump. We know that fish can take oxygen out of the water it breathes.

Solen
05/28/2013 4:42pm

I didn't get to finish.

Someone might buy an oxygen pump so that there will be more oxygen in the water for a fish to breathe. In the article Ms. O sent us, it says that fish breathe differently and some fish might require more oxygen then others so the reason someone might buy an oxygen pump is so their fish can breathe better.

Shanan

I think that a oxygen pump is used to freshen the water and add oxygen because if you have a water pump it pumps water. I think someone would buy this item so they could freshen a fish tank to keep the fish alive. That is what I think of the oxygen pump.

Shruthi
05/28/2013 5:06pm

One similarity between both respiratory systems, are capillaries.

Capillaries are used in a humans' and fishes' respiratory system. 

In the human respiratory system article, it says that oxygen moves from air sacs to the capillaries. Then the red blood cells take this oxygens  to the heart. In the fish respiratory system picture, it shows blood capillaries on the thin plates. Which the oxygen goes through, then goes to the heart,  joining the fish's respiratory system.

One different thing between these two respiratory systems is- 

Humans have two ways to get oxygen into their bodies. Fish only have one.

In the human respiratory system website, it said humans can breathe through the mouth or nose, two ways. In the fish respiratory system picture, it shows oxygen going in only through the mouth one way.

Shruthi
05/28/2013 5:30pm

Someone might buy an oxygen pump so that the fish can have more oxygen to breathe in.

In the article Ms. O sent us it said that some types of fish need more oxygen than others. For example, trout prefer northern streams because the cool water of the streams tend to have dissolved oxygen in it and trouts are active so they need the extra oxygen. Another type of fish carp, don't have that much energy so it doesn't  need as much oxygen.

Another claim I could make is-

How much oxygen your fish needs could also depend on how active the fish is.

Because of the evidence above it really could mean that if your fish is active it needs more oxygen than other fish, (carp) that aren't as active.

A difference is that we have lungs and fish have gills and a similarity is that both systems take in oxygen and release carbon dioxide.

Dhatri
05/28/2013 6:38pm

A difference that both respiratory systems have is that the fish breathe in water with oxygen that gets filtered, while humans breathe in plain old oxygen that gets traded with carbon dioxide. On the fish's picture you can see how the fish breathe in water that goes through the gills, then through the gill filaments, into a thin plate, and finally goes to a capillary that sucks out the oxygen. On the human's respiratory system, it says that AIR comes in! I mean, we don't live underwater, so no water comes in!

Shanan
05/28/2013 6:52pm

Someone would buy the oxygen pump for their fish if there fish is a fish who needs more oxygen than other fish. In the first article we read on fish respiratory systems, it said that some fish need more oxygen than others. It also stated that the amount of oxygen a fish can also have to do with how active they are, so if they are healthy, then they will need an oxygen pump so that they can have enough oxygen in order to live.

Amna
05/28/2013 6:55pm

People might want a oxygen pump to keep the fish tanks water clean without carbon dioxide interfering.

Dhatri
05/28/2013 7:01pm

People who own fishes as pets might buy oxygen tanks for their fishes. Why? Well some fishes need more oxygen than others. In the article that Ms.O sent us, it says that some fish need more oxygen than others. For example, tuna, generally swim with their mouths open because they have this problem. Maybe the owners of those fish want to help them by giving them more oxygen with an oxygen tank. Another reason why people might by oxygen tanks is to make the water fresher. Oxygen would make the water fresher,and possibly cleaner. It would be better for the fish.

Thejas(continued)
05/28/2013 7:42pm

Another way humans and fish have a similar respiratory system is that the fish breathe using capillaries to suck in oxygen with their gills, but humans similarly have alveoli on their capillaries to get rich oxygen. But one way they are different is that because humans are more terrestrial, we can breathe in through our nose and mouth, like most mammals, but fish have gills, which is their only way of breathing, like a filter.

Thejas
05/28/2013 7:47pm

People can buy an oxygen pump, because for fish aquariums, if you have a tuna or any fish that has a less lean breathing system, you're going to want to give some more oxygen, because tuna regularly swim with their mouths open, because of this.

Matthew Lai
05/28/2013 8:32pm

I think somone might buy an oxygen pump for their fish because some fish need more oxygen. For example in the article it said that tuna needed more oxygen so that might be a reason. Also it could make breathing easier for fish who don't need so much o2

Matthew Lai
05/28/2013 8:33pm

I forgot a period on the last sentence.

Matthew Brown
05/28/2013 8:34pm

Difference: the difference between the fish respirartory system and the humane is the fish only breathe through it's mouth.

Oxyegon pump
people might buy the oxyegon pump because the pump will pump oxyegon in were fish more need oxyegon

Pranav
05/28/2013 8:42pm

Fish need oxygen in there water.
Because if they don't have any oxygen in the water they will not be able to breath plain water there has to be and air pump or a purifieing aqariam water spray.

Chloe
05/28/2013 8:42pm

I think that a fish owner would buy an oxygen pump for the fish to breath. I say this because in the ocean, fish breath by sucking in the water and the alveoli and capillaries creating oxygen. So the owner might buy one to add oxygen to the tank allowing fish to breath because there might be a top ceiling the tank

Jordan
05/28/2013 9:10pm

I think that people might buy the oxygen pump because the fish need air even thought water has oxygen in will run out and fish NEED oxygen to live!

Chlaudi
05/28/2013 9:29pm

Difference: We use both our mouth and our nose for breathing oxygen, Fish only use their nose for breathing...
Similarities: Well something that actually surprised me was that fish have capillaries, too! But they don't have lungs, so that's different! But we have capillaries, and so do fish!
Oxygen Pump: Oxygen pumps are bought by people who think their fish should have more oxygen, because, well… Fish without much oxygen won't live long, so people can use it because they care a lot about their fish (Which hopefully everyone does...) and they want them to last a long time, also if it is needed for emergencies...

Chlaudi
05/28/2013 9:34pm
