According to Wikipedia:

The blobfish (Psychrolutes marcidus) is a deep sea fish of the family Psychrolutidae. Inhabiting the deep waters off the coasts of mainland Australia and Tasmania, it is rarely seen by humans.

That’s probably for the best.

      ‘In contrast, Piccinini has moved into uncharted territory with her poignant new sculpture, Eulogy, Ms Messenger says. ‘This sculpture of a miserable-looking creature cradled in a man’s hands appears to be another of Piccinini’s fantastical creatures, but it actually already exists in nature’.

      ‘It is the highly evolved Blobfish (Psychrolutes marcidus), which inhabits the deep waters off mainland Australia and Tasmania. It is sadly facing extinction due to deep-sea trawler fishing’.
