|Release||15 January 2008 (Update)|
|Abilities|| Forager - produces Swordfish and Tuna while summoner is fishing
Fishing +3 - invisible
|Special moves||Fish rain|
|Examine||I wonder if it uses the 'Crane' technique.|
As with any invisible boost, it does not grant abilities above the player's level (e.g. the ability to catch new kinds of fish). It does, however, increase the success rate of catching fish.
While the player is fishing, the Ibis will forage tuna and swordfish. The ibis produces fish when the player fishes at any fishing spot, and can hold up to 30 fish. However, this is very unlikely without renewing it a few times. Each time the ibis catches a swordfish, players gain 10 Fishing experience. This is unaffected by the use of swordfish gloves or the sacred clay harpoon. Players do not gain Fishing experience when the ibis forages a tuna.
While practising barbarian fishing with a barbarian rod or net fishing inside the Piscatoris Fishing Colony, the ibis tends to only produce swordfish. This also occurs while fishing in Shilo Village, Living Rock Caverns, Barbarian Village and on Jatizso.

|A scroll for a ibis familiar.|
Fish rain is the special move of the ibis, used with a Fish rain scroll. The special move makes fish (raw shrimp, bass, cod, and mackerel) fall out of the sky. Fish Rain can be activated by having a Fish rain scroll in the player's inventory. Using the scroll costs 12 special points. It can be used 5 times before the player will have to wait for the special to raise. If cast in a player owned house it will not generate fish.
- The ibis's examine text, "I wonder if it uses the 'Crane' technique," is a reference to both the bird type and fighting technique. The Crane style is a technique of many martial arts and many birds that look like the ibis are sometimes referred to as 'Crane birds' because of their long necks and beaks.
