WARNING! Fugu may kill you!
fish is called "rabbithead" or "rabbitnose" as well.
It is a delicatesse in japanese speciality restaurants called FUGU, but parts of it are extremely dangerous and the poison, which is NOT degradable or destroyed from cooking can cause severe toxic reactions!
Officials in Greece and also in Turkey as well like other southeast-mediterranean countries spread warnings to all fishermen - professionals and private fishers! Was seen in 2012 in Croatia as well!
There were a few reports in the last years, that the pufferfish is about to invade the mediterranean sea and spread through waters around eastern islands like Cyprus, Crete and the Dodecanese like Rhodes (2003). Croatia reports 2012 - the pictures below are from summer 2012
So do turkish authorities and croatians!
