You will only be able to catch fish in dungeons with a Complexity level of 2 or above. Below is a table showing the different types of fish and the level required to catch them. Refer to our Cooking guide for more information on how much they heal.
|Fish Name||Image||Level to Catch/Cook||Experience||Member's only|
|Item Name||Image||Level Needed||Effect||Crumbles after|
|Swordfish gloves||65 Fishing||100 extra XP per Swordfish caught||1000 Swordfish caught|
|Shark gloves||90 Fishing||100 extra XP per Shark caught||1000 Shark caught|
When you have reached 48 Fishing and 35 Strength you can start the Barbarian training. After completing Barbarian training you can will be able to catch several types of fish with your hands instead of a Harpoon.
