Surprising inventiveness in the molecular interactions in fish hemoglobins that express the Root effect (decreased oxygen-carrying capacity at low pH) and in metabolic adaptations in swim bladder gas gland cells and retinal tissues causes local acidification of blood and generates hyperbaric oxygen tensions that drive oxygen into the swim bladder (regulating buoyancy) and ensures the oxygen supply to the avascularized retinae.
