swimming? nope

This is the diving bell spider ( aquatics), a spider
that spends almost its entire life underwater.
They spin air chambers with their silk that allow them to
breathe. They don' t even need to resurface to fill the chamber
with air as the bubble acts like a gill, extracting dissolved oxygen
from the water and dispersing carbon dioxide,

we tried stuff like that, spiders can only grow to a certain size due to how they take in Oxygen, with only X amount of oxygen they can only grow to Y size, So breeding giant spiders they most likely would suffocate as soon as you take them out of their sacs/ the lab.

We have a lot less oxygen in the air than we did millions of years ago where dragonflies had the wingspan of eagles, spiders can only get bigger depending on the oxygen in the environment, if you made a giant biosphere and pumped it with oxygen sure but as soon as it leaves that it will suffocate to death

Interesting. Other planets with higher levels of atmospheric oxygen=lol nope. But that could work easily for harvesting lots of silk. Also what about direct oxygen injected into it like some kind of cyborg spider for military reasons hmm. But it sounds like they absorb through skin? And surface area to volume is lost at high sizes. Perhaps genetically modify them for a avian respiratory system

Well they breathe through tiny holes on the sides of their body,  so dunno if directly injecting it or making some sort of oxygen suit would be as effective.   
   
We tried harvesting silk here too, problem is spiders eat each other, I don't think we would be in a position to farm them for some time which sucks since spider silk is like  6 times stronger than steel as per density, and has tensile strength comparable to it ( just above 1GPa which measures force per area) , but not as strong in a way since the whole elasticity thing so whilst as strong it isn't as stiff or sturdy.   
   
Since its a protein it has like all the byproducts carbon etc, they tried breeding ' spider goats' so like the silk could be extracted through goats milk but that endeavour ended in bankruptcy.

What i was trying to say is how the ratio of surface area/vol decreases as volume increases. They need a large surface area in order to have many holes for gas exchange right? so a large spider would not have enough surface area relative to the amount of cells he has. similar reason to why large cells don't exist, too much of the cell, not enough surface area for diffusion of nutrients. the problem is those tubes are a passive system, unlike lungs. lungs also solve the surface area problem with all the tubes and avioli equating to a surface area of a tennis court ive heard. So, we could either give spiders lungs genetically ( very difficult) , OR fix the problem technologically.

So my idea was somehow injecting the oxygen into the bloodstream directly, which would somehow serve as lungs in a way, an artificial oxygen system. www.popsci.com/science/article/2012-06/injecting-oxygen-filled-microparticles-bloodstream-could-buy-half-hour-suffocating-patients something like this but it would need to be able to be stable for longer periods which is addressed at the end.

another idea could be to put spiders in separate self contained cells and create a very high oxygen environment.

the ironic thing is the spiders and their oxygen basically goes all the way back to the original problem, getting oxygen for scuba divers.

There are potential methods that exist but the main problem is that a rebreather that can provide enough oxygen to the average human will have to be big and bulky, because of the large amount of water that has to be processed. An average diver with a fully closed-circuit rebreather needs 1 liter of oxygen per minute so at least 192 litres of sea water per minute would have to be passed through the system, and this system would not work in anoxic water. However modern submarines generate oxygen very efficiently. They use an oxygen generator (I think it's called "the Bomb" or something like that) where they use electrolysis to create oxygen from water and the hydrogen is bled overboard as mini bubbles through a diffusion tube into the ocean.

We can

it just easier to use an air tank.

Also, the way our bodies utilize oxygen, you can't get enough of it from water so you would still die of hypoxia. We're built from the ground up with a huge supply of oxygen in mind, so a "gill suit" like someone below me suggested wouldn't supply enough oxygen, and that's not even accounting for the amount of co2 we produce.

In New Zealand/Australia we get Funnel Web spiders. They're attracted to water and so often fall into swimming pools. Thing is, when they do this they curl up and appear dead but they're just sleeping and using the tiny amounts of air trapped in the hair on it's body. Some unsuspecting pleb will find one in their pool, get it out and it'll wake back up and go ******* nuts. Pic related, it's one of these demon-spawn.

To increase your horror, here's a little bit from the wiki page I copied a while back to describe them to a friend. This is in relation to them biting you: in some cases the spider will remain attached until dislodged by shaking or flicking it off.

It pretty much is. They're a bitch to kill. Found one with a 4cm long body (not including legs as there's no ******* way I was going to stretch out it's legs in case it wasn't really dead) which may not seem big but I had to use my ex's stiletto heel to burst it as nothing else was stopping it. You could actually hear it rupturing as well. She never wore those shoes again after hearing it pop.

It is venomous and can kill kids with ease, but not so much adults. Just excrutiating pain for several hours-a full day for most of us. The horrifying thing is, the venom only affects Humans and other similar primates but no other larger mammals.
