A fish that is known to swallow crude oil; used by BP to solve their oil crisis. Has four fins, a pointed tail, carnivorous teeth, is very overweight looking, and has a sack near it's gills that filters oil out of it's breathing water and stores it. The sack can be punctured with a syringe and have the oil withdrawn, which is a common use in poor, coastal countries. This practice does not harm the Bolute fish, as it can quickly repair the damage and it does not impair filtering of water.
Those Bolute fish sure are fat today! They must be bursting with oil!
