what i think is interesting is the way bodies ( human ) preserve at the bottom of Lake Tahoe . Something about the temp of a constant 38 degrees I imagine . Maybe the crystal clear water has something to do with it also? Pressure may play a roll ?
Don't know . Kind of still a mystery ?
Clear water is usually an indicator of a lack of microorganisms, so maybe that's it? It looks like Tahoe has a fairly high oxygen saturation even at very deep levels, which wouldn't preclude fish or other life from living at the bottom.

Fish need oxygen!
What are you anyway, an artificial intelligence?
You don't seem to have the foggiest clue about how the real world works.
Why don't you go play toy train with Rob Penner?
What are you talking about . Did you think don't means do . Would not and would are the same to you . Did you understand what she said ? She said fish and other lake creatures should live there given the amount of oxygen in the lake .
I am an interpreter now for the learned impaired . O.K. Guess I am sorry for making what looks like an insult to you, but really was not . I have my learning disabilities so I don't really see them as disabilities but enhancement of new road not taken . Looking under rocks kind of thing when we play at the river looking for stick bugs.
You ever seen a stick bug ? Thay can get to be 18" or more and are kind of creepy when you see one in the wild .
So what do you mean by fish need oxygen? Are you implying some one said that fish don't need oxygen ? Did you read between the lines that some one said fish don't need oxygen ? Could it be a misinterpretation on your own behalf .
Are you a single handed lynch mob ? The Grammar police ?
Lets clarify. Fish should be able to live at the bottom of Lake Tahoe because there appears to be plenty of oxygen in lake Tahoe.
There is and it is clear as can be. Melted Glacier I believe . I fished it once . No luck on any sizable trout but I tell you what the chums were plentiful ( For you that don't know chum is an expression for a variety of fish that are not game fish . Like minnows are a good example of chum .
There are butt loads of chum . So much so they will strip your bait in a heart beat before other fish have a chance to get at your line
