Badamb Fish explanation from FFVIII Remastered

The Badamb Fish (バッダムフィッシュ, Baddamu Fisshu?) is a fish in Final Fantasy VIII that makes one ill when eaten. It takes its name from the famous Balamb fish, which it can be confused for.

Raijin catches one, cooks it in Zell's house, and then feeds it to Galbadian soldiers because it smells funny, causing them to become sick. After Balamb Town has been liberated, the player can find a traveling chef on the docks who muses that Balamb fish is a delicacy, but the similar Badamb fish will only numb the eater.
