Blue bastard is a fish that is found in Australian waters. Locals from North Australia christened the fish with this name due to the trouble undertaken to catch it and its hue.

The Kissing Fish, discovered mainly in tropical waters in northern Australia, grows up to 1 meter and keeps turning blue with age. Initially, this was thought to be just another sweetlips fish.

In addition to the entire physical structure and name of the Kissing Fish, it also comes with some uncommon practices. It is assumed to be kissing by the local fishers. Opposing male fishes frequently lock lips when in conflict.

Though Kissing Fish is nothing like that, it may just be way of responding in combat times. This blue bastard, just like its previous generations, is not eatable because it tastes horrible.

Researchers suspect that these are not the last species of this family. More of these are to be discovered as time passes.
