From the Super Mario Wiki
Loch Nestor is a puffer fish enemy encountered in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island and Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3. It's the underwater counterpart of Boo Balloon, but the differents is that Boo Balloon chases you, even when you don't throw eggs, and Loch Nestor can't attack you unless the enemy is attacked by an torpedo. It only appears in stages where Yoshi must morph into a submarine. If it is hit by a torpedo, it simply grows two times larger and chases Yoshi. After it is hit three times, it explodes.
Loch Nestors reappear in Yoshi's New Island.
