Danger Level 1
Material Nonmetallic

Fish meat is a rare food item, but can be generated by applying Survival on wilderness water squares while bloated. ("You catch some fish. you are too full to digest them. You gather the fish" in game message). It can be cooked into a fried piece of fish meat, which has the same purposes, but double the satiation value.


It is a reasonable food source, with satiation value of 625/500/250 for B/U/C pieces. Fish meat can also be used to tame giant raccoons, black hurthlings, wild cats and cave lions. Cave tigers refuse to take them.

The only problem with using fish meat as a food source is obtaining pieces of it — doing so using the Survival skill wastes in-game time and brings the risk of drowning.

Guaranteed/Common sources[]

Can be rarely generated as generic loot, or by applying survival skill on water squares in wilderness (character needs to be bloated)
