Meat öf the sea!


There are 2 basic Fish Food Items in Don't Starve; Fish and Eel (There are 16 additional types in the Shipwrecked DLC and 13 additional types in Don't Starve Together). Fish can be obtained by Fishing in Ponds on either the Surface World or the Caves, and as a drop from Merms / Merm Heads. Eels, however, can only be fished from Ponds found in the Ruins. Both types of Fish are a subtype of Meat, and as such, can be used as Meat fillers in the Crock Pot. In Don't Starve Together Ocean Fishes can be fished from the Ocean with the Sea Fishing Rod.

Mobs such as Pigs, Spiders or Hounds will eat any form of dropped Fish on the ground. Additionally, Bunnymen will be aggressive towards a player if they have any item on this list.

Icon Tools Usage Edit

  • There are 3 Crock Pot recipes that require Fish meat. Two of the recipes, Fish Tacos and Fishsticks, will accept both Fish or Eel, while Unagi only accepts Eel. (There are 12 additional recipes in the Shipwrecked DLC.)
  • Many of the Fish can be dried on a Drying Rack, resulting in Jerky, a much longer-lasting food item with different Hunger, Sanity, and Health bonuses. Most of the Fish can also be used in Crock Pot recipes.
  • Many Fish have both a Meat Value and a Fish Value when used in a Crock Pot, giving a wide variety of potential recipes.
  • In the Shipwrecked DLC, any type of Fish (and many Fish Crock Pot recipes) can be given to the Yaarctopus in exchange for Octopus Chests (except shark fin).
