The Ministry of Health and Population warned citizens against eating or catching the shark, because it is a poisonous fish that leads to death, and its poison does not have a healing serum, and it is known as the most deadly fish in the world.

During this report, we monitor the 9 most important information about this fish, its types, where it is found, and where its poison comes from.
