Fish are commonly fished up from the sea with a Fishing Pole. Fishing skill affects success rate and what kinds of things, in addition to fish, may be fished up. Stackable fish may be deeded with Commodity Deeds as of Publish 68.

Some fish can also be caught via an "Aquarium Fishing Net" to place into an Aquarium for the home, which will in turn generate a few more rare fish; but these will not survive outside of either the Aquarium or a Fish Bowl and cannot be turned into a Trophy nor cut up for steaks. This article will thus focus only on Fish caught via the Fishing Skill.

Rare Fish

The High Seas booster pack introduced 13 types of rare big fish. Each type is only available in a specific location and requires a high fishing skill level to catch. When cut up, they produce special fish steaks that can be used in some Cooking recipes (see: Magic Fish Buff). Baits and Magical Fish Finder assist in catching these notoriously shy types of fish.
