BLADDER

Definition

A sac-shaped muscular organ that stores the urine excreted by the kidneys. In fish, the swimbladder is an organ containing gas, present in the roof of the abdominal cavity in bony fish. It allows the specific gravity of the fish to vary in order to match the depth at which the fish is swimming or resting.See also GALL BLADDER.
