This article is about the type of mob. For the action, see Fishing.

Fish are aquatic life-forms that are found everywhere throughout the different types of oceans.

They are referred as mobs and are listed below.


Minecraft Dungeons[edit]


Fish can be found swimming in rivers and oceans. All types of fish appear in oceans. Only cod and salmon appear in rivers, and they can also spawn in player-created bodies of water. Upon death, they drop the raw equivalent of their meat, with a chance to drop a bone[Bedrock Edition only] or bone meal.‌[Java Edition only]

Fish can spawn between 24 (cylindrical) and 64 (spherical) blocks away from the player.‌[Java Edition only]


As of 1.16, fish can despawn at range of 40 blocks or more and will instantly despawn after 64 blocks on all simulation distances, except when spawned using a Bucket of Fish.
