Puffer Fish

Puffer fish create an imposing appearance by pumping air into their expandable stomach. They can be as dangerous to other fish as they look, with small teeth that form powerful cutting and crushing plates. Puffer FishMost puffers also produce a poison, concentrated on their skin and other organs.

Long Island Aquarium’s Puffer Fish exhibit includes the northern puffer (Sphoerides maculatus) and the Australian globefish (Diodon nichthenerus).
