Hi everyone,

Can somebody tell me which species of saltwater puffer fish grows the largest?

Thank you,

Arothron hispidus?
I'm not a marine expert but I did a research on my references about marine puffers.

Hi Blue,

I did some more research and it looks like the largest puffer fish is the Starry Puffer, not the Stars and Stripes Puffer you suggested. Close, though :)

Thanks,
Admin

the largest pufferfish I am aware of is arathron stellatus, (once again, not sure about spelling, too lazy to look it up), they reach a max size of 48" give or take
