How do fish breathe?

Fish do not "breathe" in the sense that terrestrial animals and cetaceans do. Fish possess gills that expose their blood to free oxygen in the water. Simply swimming and swallowing air is enough to provide oxygen. That is why aquarium bubblers exist and why you can often see goldfish "gulping"; they don't have enough free oxygen in the water.
