PARLEMENT EUROPEEN - Réponse à question: E-3101/07 Poisson dangereux en Méditerranée. Case reports in critical care 01/2012 Severe Tetrodotoxin Poisoning after Consumption of Lagocephalus sceleratus (Pufferfish, Fugu) Fished in Mediterranean Sea, Treated with Cholinesterase Inhibitor. Abstract Lagocephalus sceleratus , or better known as the pufferfish, or fugu, is widespread in Asia and Indo-Pacific regions.
It is a poisonous fish containing tetrodotoxin (TTX) which is a potent neurotoxin. In the Far East, fugu is considered a delicate dish, especially in Japan where it is prepared by experts. Nevertheless, poisoning from Lagocephalus sceleratus is not a rare event. Recent data from Japan indicate an incidence of 45 patients per year and a mortality rate of 11%.

Ecological characteristics of the invasive pufferfish Lagocephalus sceleratus (Gmelin, 1789) in the eastern Mediterranean Sea – a case study from Rhodes Abstract In this study, the ecological and societal impact of the invasive pufferfish Lagocephalus sceleratus on coastal habitats of an area of the eastern Mediterranean Sea (Rhodes Island) was investigated.
Seasonal quantitative samplings in two common coastal habitats were used to investigate habitat use of different life-stages.
