Hi student
As oxygen is more soluble in cold water in comparision to hot water and thats what the reason is that aquatic animals are more comfortable in cold water.

According to Henry law,the solubility of a gas is dependent on the partial pressure of gas above the liquid multiplied by Henry constant.....Thus it is known that as temperature increases..... The Henry constant is decreased leading to less solubility of oxygen in water leading to discomfort in warm water.so aquatic species are more comfortable in cold water. Regards.....

Cold water is an exothermic reaction and when the temperature increases the solubility also increases so ,

Oxygen is more soluble in cold water as compare to hot one. Increase in temperature leads to decrease in solubility

Warm water speeds up the animals` metabolic need for oxygen to such an extent that it causes them to suffer from fatal respiratory distress. A team of ecologists from Radboud University and Cardiff University published this finding in Global Change Biology.
