    The hagfish does not produce the slime itself. As a defense mechanism, it spews out some type of protein, that bonds the water together with an awesome effect.

    Should the hagfish get swallowed by a bigger fish, the slime will be produced, and might allow the hagfish to escape by slithering out, or it might clog the gills of the predator.

    It is a very unique defense mechanism. I love it.

    This fish is really cool. It also has the ability to tie itself in a knot and move the knot down its body to push away from things that have grabbed its tail.

    Here`s a video.

    I imagine if a big fish tries to eat the hag, It would just turn into a big fat lewgee and he bigger fish would have to hork it out.
