How do fish live under crushing pressure?

Asked: VasilisKs, Last Updated:

Fishes survive underwater pressure as they do not breathe through lungs. Therefore, they do not have air pockets that can be compressed due to the high pressures. The beaked whale which can go as deep as 10,000 feet can completely compress their lungs so that all the air in it has been expelled.
