The fugu is so poisonous that in Japan, fugu chefs are trained specially for the job and are tested before being a given certificates of practice.

The training takes two or three years. In order to pass, the chef must answer a written test then give a demonstration of his cutting abilities.

The final part of the test involves the chef eating the pieces of fugu that he has cut.

Only 30% of apprentices pass the test – which is not to say that the rest die by eating their fugu – they can fail in earlier parts of the test.

Only the flesh of the fugu is consumed as it is less likely to have high amounts of poison which causes a slight tingling sensation in the mouth.
