On our way to an uninhabited island called Bat in the Arabian sea off the Goan coast, we caught this fish. The fishermen who accompanied us did something to make it bloat up like this. On being advised not to eat it (some species of pufferfish are apparently the second most poisonous vertebrate in the world), we dropped it back in the water and it zoomed off like an open deflating balloon does when left on its own.
