Members can cook the raw monkfish at level 62 Cooking, and gain 150 experience if they are successful in doing so. Players cooking on a range will stop burning at level 90, or 87 with cooking gauntlets. If cooking on a fire, the levels are 92 and 90 respectively. Cooking monkfish gives approximately 140,000 experience per hour at level 90 with gauntlets.
