Fugu fish in Crimea - level 2
Some fishermen in Crimea caught a fish which normally does not live there. It is the fugu fish. This fish blows itself up like a balloon when it is in danger. Also, its organs have a deadly poison. Eating the smallest amount will kill you.
The fish is a delicacy for the Japanese who know how to eat the fish carefully, but people in Crimea are not happy about its presence. They believe that it may be a threat to life in the Black Sea. Cooks there do not want to prepare the fish, either.
Scientists are still working out how the fish got to Crimea.
Difficult words: delicacy (something delicious and rare), threat (danger), work out (to try to find an answer to something).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
