Fugu is one of the most deadly foods on the planet. The flesh contains neurotoxine that can kill you within hours. It is very popular in Japan where highly trained chefs prepare the fish carefully to avoid the poisonous parts. Even still, there are a number of fatalities each year from eating fugu. The thrill is not so much in the eating experience as much as the gamble with your life.
Torrevieja council have issued a warning to fishermen about the presence of this fish and the danger of either eating it or marketing it for consumption.
