Ocean Fishes are passive Mobs in Don't Starve Together, introduced in Return of Them. They appear regularly close to player in the Ocean.

There are ten species of Ocean Fish separated into two categories: Small Ocean Fish and Medium Ocean Fish. All Ocean fish can be eaten raw to restore Hunger Meter and Health Meter. They can be placed in the Fish Scale-O-Matic.

Small Ocean Fish can be murdered to obtain one Fish Morsel, and can be cooked for one Cooked Fish Morsel. They can be used as a Crock Pot ingredient and count for 0.5 Meats and 0.5 Fishes. They spoil after 1 day in the inventory, leaving one Fish Morsel. This can be prevented with the Tin Fishin' Bin. The only exception is the Popperfish, which drops Popcorn in all cases, and counts for Popcorn in the Crock Pot.

Medium Ocean Fish can be murdered to obtain one Raw Fish, and can be cooked for one Fish Steak. They can be used as a Crock Pot ingredient and count for 1 Meats and 1 Fishes. They spoil after 1 day in the inventory, leaving one Fish Meat. This can be prevented with the Tin Fishin' Bin. The only exception is the Corn Cod, which drops Corn when killed and spoiling, Popcorn when cooked, and counts for Corn in the Crock Pot.

Sea Fishing Rod Gathering Edit

Ocean Fish gather in Shoals, moving around in the Ocean. They can be fished by using a Sea Fishing Rod. Each species of Fish have different fishing behaviours and they are attracted by different types of Lures.
