How to find the answer

How to find the answer: Search [fish 1,200 times more poisonous than cyanide] to get the puffer fish. Read to learn that the delicacy is called fugu. Search [fugu poison] to find that the poison is tetrodotoxin, aka TTX or tetrodox, and is found primarily in the liver of the puffer fish.
