Pufferfish contain tetrodotoxin, a substance that makes them foul tasting and often lethal to fish. To humans, tetrodotoxin is deadly, up to 1,200 times more poisonous than cyanide. There is enough toxin in one pufferfish to kill 30 adult humans, and there is no known antidote.
Philkade is also available for full boat charter. We are a boat that caters for all needs, whether it is diving, snorkeling or just relaxing in luxury, we can change the atmosphere and feel of the boat to suit all. The boat's many amenities and spacious decks made us the ideal choice for National Geographic, who used the boat as their research base when checking the soft coral reefs of Thailand. Even with the large amounts of camera and research equipment that they had onboard there was always a place to relax. Please contact us for more details.
