PIC FROM Kerryn Parkinson/ NORFANZ founding parties/ CATERS – The unfortunately named blobfish – So you think you’ve had a bad day?… spare a thought for the worlds most miserable-looking fish who is now in danger of being wiped out.
The unfortunately named blobfish has already acquired a reputation for looking sad thanks to its miserable mush. The bloated bottom dweller, which can grow up to 12 inches, lives at depths of up to 900m making it rarely seen by humans. But thanks to increasing fishing of the seas Down Under the fish is being dragged up with other catches.
Despite being unedible itself, the blobfish unluckily lives at the same depths as other more appetising ocean organisms, including crab and lobster.
