    I am in 6th grade now. I need to answer some question for my school paper.
    It is about whale. And I can't find the answer in the web page so I would
    like to ask you some question. The question are -why cant whales survive in
    the fresh water?

    Hi Aastha, the best answer to your question can be found on the WhaleNet
    archives section at http://whale.wheelock.edu/archives/ask97/0413.html. Let
    me know if this helps you.
    Thank you,
