They can be obtained by fishing in a Shoal or Tidal Pool with a Fishing Rod or driving over it with Boats with an attached Trawl Net. Merms and Fishermerms will drop Tropical Fish when killed. Fish Farms have a 50% chance to produce Tropical Fish when stocked with Roe, which can then be harvested. Hammering down Merm Hut and Fishermerm's Hut will also yield Tropical Fish, however these structures are not renewable and destroying them will also remove the source of Merm and Fishermerms respectively. Fishermerms will fish in Tidal Pools on their own for Tropical Fish, but they will not eat what they catch, which then can then be collected by the player.
Tropical fish can be used in Crock Pot, and counts as 0.5 units Meats and 1 units of Fishes. Cooking Tropical Fish on a Fire will yield Cooked Fish Morsel. It can also be dried to get Small Jerky. It can be traded to Yaarctopus for Dubloons.
Usage[edit | edit source]
Tips[edit | edit source]
- Tropical Fish has more meat and fish value than Cooked Fish Morsel obtained by cooking it on fire, so it is not recommended to cook Tropical Fishes if they are going to be used in the Crock Pot. Drying them also has a similar effect, but it may be more desirable since Small Jerky can be used in recipes that Tropical Fish cannot be, due to many Fish based recipes taking precedence over Meat based ones.
