For other uses, see Fish (disambiguation).

Fish and other marine life are found throughout RuneScape. Conventional fish can be caught using a number of methods with the Fishing skill, and then cooked with the Cooking skill for food. There are unique fish that are obtained by ways other than fishing. Experience can be increased by draining a sacred clay harpoon or volatile clay harpoon bonus xp from the Stealing Creation minigame.
