It is also known as blowfish, a Japanese delicacy that if it is not prepared properly can cause death to the consumers. Its deadly cause comes from the fact that if it is not cut correctly, a tetrodoxine-can be a poison for the human body is released in the meat of the fish. The tetrodoxine causes the muscles to freeze up and can lead to asphyxiation. Unfortunately there is no antidote and this fish has been the last meal for few people, unintentionally.
