Below is a list of fish commonly caught during fishing. These are mostly used as crafting materials for various potions. This does not include quest fish or the fish in Other fishing catches. The fish used for brewing potions (not those cooked for other food items), plus the Neon Tetra and Honeyfin, can also be used in pairs to craft a Seafood Dinner.

  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 1.3 1.4 1.5 1.6 1.7 If fishing in the Ocean biome, only bodies of water with fewer than 1000 tiles will yield this fish.
  2. 2.0 2.1 Armored Cavefish and Specular Fish share portions of the Common, Uncommon, and Plentiful catch quality slots. As an approximation, Armored Cavefish can be considered Uncommon, and Specular Fish can be considered Plentiful in Snow biome or Common otherwise.
  3. 3.0 3.1 3.2 3.3 3.4 This also implies a body of water that has at least 1000 tiles. Fishing in a small box above the ocean's surface, for instance, will not yield this fish.
