Nitrite exposure in aquatic animals directly affects their blood physiology by altering their blood acid–base homeostasis (Madison and Wang, 2006). In addition, nitrite exposure decreases the oxygen affinity of hemoglobin as a result of the conversion of Fe2+ to Fe3+ in the heme group [29], which results in hypoxia.
