From D&D Wiki
Medium beast, unaligned
Slippery. The hagfish has advantage on ability checks and saving throws made to escape a grapple.
Water Breathing. The hagfish can breathe only underwater.
Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 5 ft., one creature. Hit: 5 (2d4) piercing damage.
Exude Slime (Recharges after a Short or Long Rest). The area in a 10-foot radius around the giant hagfish is filled with slime. Creatures that can breathe underwater that start their turn in the slime must make a DC 11 Constitution check or become unable to breathe. Creatures that do not have a swimming speed that start their turn in the slime must make a DC 11 Strength check or have their speed reduced to 0 feet. Affected creatures can repeat these saving throws at the start of their subsequent turns to end the effects.
Hagfish are eel-like animals with smooth, purple, loose-fitting skin and simple eyes that cannot see far. They have several rows of horizontal teeth in a jawless mouth. This giant variant feeds on the carcasses of large aquatic animals by burrowing into its interior. Giant hagfish are most commonly encountered when another animal – or an adventurer – disturbs such a corpse and the hagfish squirms out of the rotting matter. They are also found hiding in caves or under large rocks.
