A Deadly Delicacy Photograph by Cary Wolinsky
Fugu, or pufferfish, is a delicacy in Japan. But because the liver and other internal organs of the fish contain tetrodotoxin, fugu can be deadly if not prepared correctly. Since 1958 Tokyo has required chefs to be licensed. At this practice examination, held at the Tsukiji fish market in the center of Tokyo, candidates have 20 minutes to dissect the fish into edible and inedible pieces, label the parts with plastic tags, and artfully arrange a plate of fugu sashimi.
