as far as i know fugo is no seasonal dish and can be gotten around the year. prices are about 80-200 EUR, but if you just want to try it you can get some single sushi or sashimi in good sushi restaurants for about 10 EUR

Wild-caught fugu is in season during the winter months (approx. October to March), although you can find farmed fugu year-round at many fugu specialty restaurants.

Because of fugu's toxicity, restaurants need a special license to serve it, so you won't find it in regular sushi restaurants.

It's not particularly tasty though, and certainly not worth paying a huge price for. If you really want to try it, I'd suggest going at lunchtime, or ordering just a plateful rather than a whole expensive meal.

As sashimi it is lovely with the particular citrus sauce that they put on it, and cut so thin it is transparent-ish. But that is more the sauce that I like, I think. I've also had it boiled/stewed but really it was like a piece of chicken.

You can get Fugu year round, but once you've had it it's not worth the cost. You won't find it at 100\ sushi shops, but you can usually get a plate for about 1000\ at higher end sushi places. I've never had it with any kind of citrus sauce, nothing more than a few drops of lemon.
