 dinoflagellate called Gambierdiscus:

The dinoflagellates (Greek δῖνος dinos "whirling" and Latin flagellum "whip, scourge") are a monophyletic group of single-celled eukaryotes constituting the phylum Dinoflagellata[5] and are usually considered protists. Dinoflagellates are mostly marine plankton, but they also are common in freshwater habitats. Their populations vary with sea surface temperature, salinity, and depth. Many dinoflagellates are photosynthetic, but a large fraction of these are in fact mixotrophic, combining photosynthesis with ingestion of prey (phagotrophy and myzocytosis).[6][7] source: wikipedia

Teen Arrested For Taping Fish To ATMs: KSL says a Provo, Utah teen was recently charged for taping fish to ATMs around town. The teen's Instagram account, "fish_bandit84," gained a following of 52,000 people. Police believe his fish videos were meant as a joke and to gain followers. The teenager once taped a fish to a Provo police car. He caused minimal damage.

https://www.usnews.com/news/health-news/articles/2023-12-07/advocates-say-a-mexican-startup-is-illegally-selling-a-health-drink-from-an-endangered-fish

Below is a wikipedia entry about totoaba and why it is an endangered species.  The damming and overuse of the Colorado River has changed the salinity of the totoaba spawning grounds.  That is severely affecting the totoaba population.  They are a slow growing fish that does not spawn until it is 6-7 years old. Also, the Chinese use totoaba bladders in “traditional medicine” which can sell for 20,000 each. Their own related species the bahaba is in very short supply so they have switched to totaba.
