The Blowfish is found in the ocean.
The Blowfish can be donated to the museum. Upon doing so, the following text is given by Blathers:
"Blowfish are concidered a delicacy, famous for their tempting taste despite being highly poisonous. Blowfish are not poisonous at birth, though, which makes young ones relatively safe for consumption. It's only once they have ingested enough microbes from seawater and food that they become poisonous. When they feel threatened, they suck in air and water to blow themselves up like balloons. This makes them too big to eat without predators being forced to chomp down on their posion quills."
Upon catching the fish, the player will say the following:
"I caught a blowfish! And that's not just hot air!"
