🐑 Blowfish

🐑 Description


A blowfish (puffer), which puffs up and becomes spiky when alarmed. Depicted as an orange or brown blowfish in full profile facing left, with small fins, a white underside, and a round, spiky body, as if inflated.

Called fugu in Japan, where it’s consumed as a delicacy.

May be to represent a variety of fish (saltwater or freshwater), fishing, metaphorical senses of fish, and fish as food, as consumed in the form of 🍣 Sushi. Not to be confused with 🐟 Fish or 🐠 Tropical Fish, though their applications may overlap. See also 🎣 Fishing Pole.

Google’s blowfish was previously blue, Microsoft’s yellow, and Facebook’s white.
