Atmospheric pressure and fish behavior

In recent decades, many authors of articles on fishing have tried to analyze how the state of the air, in particular fluctuations in atmospheric pressure, affects the life of aquatic organisms, including fish.
The main conclusion reached by almost everyone who wants to understand this issue is as follows: any change in atmospheric pressure immediately affects the physiological state of the fish, reducing its activity, or, conversely, forcing it to move more intensively in search of food (in fairness it should be noted that these phenomena are often confirmed by the practice of fishing).
Also, all authors of publications, as one, found the organ “responsible” for such a reaction in the fish – it is its swimming bladder, which, supposedly shrinking or bloating, responds to changes in external atmospheric pressure, introducing a certain discomfort into the life of the fish.
