Strange fish found on a beach, identification needed
[link to img254.imageshack.us]

A friend found this a while ago, after asking to several people who should know about the matter but didn't (for example ifremer - French Research Institute for Exploration of the Sea-)

If anyone has any idea about what this is, please enlight us

He said it is definitely some kind of puffer fish.

Looks like some variant of "jack fish" with the eyes
ate out and the mouth area chewed or rotted off.

Puffer! Speaking of puffer fish, have any of you ever seen a "dogface" puffer. It's the coolest fish ever! So weird

Was this found on a French beach? Location is relevant for identification.

And -- if a French beach: freshwater lake, Mediterranean Sea, or Atlantic Ocean / English Channel?

It's definitely a puffer fish. There are many different types. Kind of hard to ID after it's been being chewed on for a while.

No luck identifying it though. I'm only any good with freshwater fish.

As a sidenote, my brother (the fisherman) said the fish could be poisonous. Don't eat it.

Re: Strange fish found on a beach, identification needed
OP, please say why you think it is not a puffer fish. My take is that it is a puffer fish...but it is a ROTTEN puffer fish. Look at the scales. Is that fish missing an eye? It looks like a fish that washed up on the shore many days ago...and has deteriorated.
