Organisms in streams need oxygen to live when lacking dissolved oxygen it will kill these organisms. edit: unless the organisms in the stream are photosynthetic, in which case they will increase the oxygen levels. however, by far, most organisms in a stream are not photosynthetic and oxygenation occurs solely through aeration and surface area dissolving from the air. so, to answer the question, organisms (most organisms which aren't plant-based photosynthetic organisms) decrease the amount of oxygen in a stream. edit: a flowing stream has turbulence which helps aerate the water, increasing dissolved oxygen. In contrast, stagnant water tends to be low in dissolved oxygen, except near the surface. Multicellular animals (like fish) need a good supply of dissolved oxygen to thrive.
Thanks for the feedback!

What the connection between plants and oxygen?

The connection between plants and oxygen is that after the plant is done making photosynthesis it releases oxygen into the air and takes in carbon dioxide that we release into

What is Dissolved oxygen?

Dissolved oxygen is the current amount of oxygen in the water. A certain amount of Dissolved Oxygen Is needed to keep the fish alive, if any of the dissolved oxygen decreases

Why does the level of dissolved oxygen go down after sunset?

no Answer: There are several factors that could impact the levels of dissolved oxygen in natural water during the evening and night time. None of these are over riding enoug

What are the levels of structural organization between the cell and the multicellular organism?

It all starts out with cells. When there is a lot of cells that preform the same function the cells make tissues. When tissues work together they make organs. And oragans make

Which has more dissolved oxygen a stream or a lake?

there is more dissolved oxygen present in a stream because the movement and the bubbling of the air allows more oxygen to be ingested

What is the connection between cells tissues and organs?

Cells are the building blocks that make up all living organisms. Tissues are groups of like cells that, together, perform a function for the living organism. Organs are relati
