"Frog"... A Terrifying Fish in Turkey

"Frog"... A Terrifying Fish in Turkey
frog fish

Many may have heard about sharks and whales that cause panic and terror around the world, but rarely have people heard about the frog fish that annoys fishermen in Turkey, for example, and limits their livelihoods.

The strange thing is that this type of fish cannot be cooked and eaten as food, as the frog fish causes poisoning, due to the presence of toxic tetrodotoxin in its skin, muscles and liver, and this poison protects it from predators, including humans.

This silver-colored fish has only four teeth, and it can inflate its body.

It is a lazy fish, as it does not make an effort to catch its food, but it tears the nets of the fishermen, to devour the marine creatures they caught, leaving the nets torn and looted.

This fish represents a fear in particular for fishermen in Turkey who suffer from the presence of this type of fish in their fishing areas, whether because it enters their nets, although they do not want it because they will not benefit from it at all.

The Turkish government was keen to confront the threat posed by the frog fish to fishermen, so it offered to offer a reward to those who fished it and presented it to the responsible authorities, in order to limit its spread.
