Puffer fish known worldwide as one of the most dangerous delicacies. Cooking it solved only in Japan. Incidentally, a fish carcass is there $ 300. This is justified by the fact that pre-cook, who received special certification, it cut up, so as not to engage the organs that produce the poison.
In Crimea prepares fugu no because we have a special school for cooks, and she comes across the network is extremely rare. Often the fisherman who caught this prey, trying to get rid of it quickly.
“I caught the” bubble “two and a half years ago – says Alexey Naumenko, a fisherman from Yevpatoria. – Brought home, tossed in a bowl, it hurt inflated. Then I figured that before such a “game” is not caught, looked on the internet, it is from yourself, and I was horrified. Poalshe from sin, the same day threw it back into the water.
Panic Alexei was probably unnecessary, since the fish itself does not sting, despite the presence of her spikes. The poison works only when the fish decided to file as a main dish – it is contained in the liver and gallbladder. The tissue toxin gets only when cutting.
Guests can live at a depth of 100 meters
Boltachev Alexander, senior specialist of the Institute of Biology of the Southern Seas, became, in his opinion, the proud owner of
two captured last week, “Sevastopol” fugue. Both were “zaformalineny” and became an ornament collection agency. As a scientist told us, it is not clear where brought these “aliens”, but there is speculation.
“The area of its habitat – tropical zone of the Indian and the Pacific – told” Vesti “Alexander Romanovich. – As it is usual in the Red Sea and entered the Mediterranean Sea about 10 years ago. And now, apparently, this kind of reached there in large numbers. This species, which came to us, the largest of tetradonovyh (fish “ball” – Ed.) – Up to 110 centimeters, different adaptability, it can be seen at a depth of over 100 meters. ”
According to the scientist, this kind of fish – purebred predators feed on benthic organisms kids, but the adults eat fish. “Sometimes they go in the Crimea – says confidently Boltachev. – Over the past 15 years, we caught about 25 fish. But this, to just two – it’s alarming. One fish, I am sure – she came, and the second – not yet understand how to get here. But we caught fish for food does not suit such even the Japanese do not eat – it serebryanoschekaya oyster toadfish. Those fish that are eaten, there are about 10 species, but this species is so toxic that it is simply not used in culinary purposes.
But can we have this kind of grow roots? Scientists can not say definitely, but probably not. “I do not think – says Alexander Romanovich. – For any fish importantly – how suitable the conditions for its reproduction. We have a temperature below the Mediterranean. It will be evident. ”
Dorado in Crimea liked
Fugue – is not the only guest in the Black Sea, there are species of fish that is not enough that miraculously fell into the waters of Crimea so also taken root.
“Of the 25 species that first came to the shores of the Crimea in the last 15 years, settled down eight – he says. – This is a few species of gobies, such as “dogs.” The fact that you can catch and eat it, for example, dorado – a large Redfin and Sarpa salpa – it is also a carp. They are very well caught at Balaclava.
Unless, of course, God forbid, puffer fish in the Crimea take hold, it will be the first sea dweller deadly for residents of the peninsula. Although, according to seasoned fishermen in our sea without anyone there to be afraid of.
Naprmer, Black Sea scorpion. The fins of these fish have spines that contain venom. It is not deadly, but it can bring a lot of inconvenience and even lead to temporary paralysis of limbs stung.
Just off the coast of Crimea inhabited sea dragons. Its crest has poisonous spines. But the consequences of “contact” with poisoned the Black Sea fish are treated with conventional antihistamine pills and ointments.
Another inhabitant of the Black Sea that can deliver a lot of inconvenience to their catchers – spiny dogfish and spiny dogfish. Two dorsal fins with sharp spines, contacts which will be very painful.
Anyway, puffer fish until the inhabitants of the Black Sea, but one of the most dangerous discoveries in it.
