New hotness: A Fish Called Nasrallah

Local fish populations are recovering and the numbers of striped eel catfish, which Israeli fishermen call Nasrallah due to its toxicity, are going down, a study reveals.

The Ministry of Environmental Protection released on Tuesday the results of a comprehensive study revealing major trends in Israeli marine life.

Other possible reasons to call this fish Nasrallah:

  • They are both going down
  • They are both bottom feeders
  • They both hide in dark, dank conditions
  • They both are associated with salt water
