Venomous fishes

 

In case you are not shure about the animal group see: "More precise identification of the cause in accidents with venomous animals in water"

 

Venomous fish can inflict painful stings, some of them leading to systemic enenoming. They usually live in coastal waters of tropical and subtropical areas, some also in temperate and cooler waters. Accidents with venomous fishes are also possible in the kitchen far away from their places of origin, while preparing them for food.
