It will eat any edible matter that is floating in front of it. Unique/Miscellaneous Because the Blobfish lives so deep in the ocean, where the pressure is very high, it makes gas-chambered swim bladers completely ineffective. Which is why Blobfish do not have swim bladders or muscles, instead they have a jelly-like flesh that is less dense than water which allows them to float above the ocean floor.
Blobfish are not very active fish because they do not have any muscles, whish is why they just sit there swallowing food matter that floats by them.
Blobfish always look like they are frowning because of the high pressure environment they live in.
A Blobfish is inedible.

80 times higher than it is at sea level. Population The exact number is not known for sure, but the number is getting lower every year due to over deep sea fishing.
