Fish is a creature found in Valheim.


Fish can be caught by hand or using a Fishing rod and Fishing bait, which are acquired via the trader. You can obtain Raw fish by grabbing the fish with [E]. When catching fish by hand, stand still in shallow water and they will slowly approach. Move your cross hair over the fish and press [E]. It is also possible to chase fish into a shallow or narrow body of water to more easily catch them.

Fish come in different sizes and give different amounts of raw fish. Tuna give the most raw fish at 4 pieces. Tuna are found further out from shore and move much faster than other fish.
