A VISITOR LOOKS UP TO SHARK AND OTHER FISH SWIMMING IN A TANK AT DEEP SEA WORLD, NORTH QUEENSFERRY, FIFE.

The sharks may feel a bit upstaged at Deep Sea World with the arrival of the world’s most poisonous fish.  The stonefish, or goblin fish as it is known, may appear to be little more than a moss-covered rock of a fish, but it has have 13 jagged spines running along its back which are highly venomous. The staff at Deep Sea World in the Kingdom of Fife have had to have special training, as an untreated sting could lead to death. No need to worry – you won’t find him lurking in the rock pool!
