Fishies are tamable passive mobs that spawn in water. There are many varieties of fish.


Fishies spawn in water between layers 46 and sea level, and can be found in any biome.


Fishies come in 11 different colors: blue, regal blue, orange-white stripe, light blue, green-yellow, green, purple, yellow, orange-blue stripe, black-white, and red.


Fishies will drop 0–2 raw fish and 0–2 eggs upon death. They drop 1–3 experience when killed by a player or tamed wolf.


Fishies are always passive towards the player, much like other passive underwater mobs.

Fish in bowl

They swim around almost immediately when first spawned into the world and wander around aimlessly, swimming up and down through each layer. They are not attracted to light, and do not deliberately interact with the player, but they will swim away from the player when approached. Fishies will also swim towards any fishing rod hook that is in water. They can be reeled in this way.

Fishies suffocate if they are beached on land for too long. While on land, they do not move, and stay stationary until they suffocate. They can take fall damage and burn like any land mob, but they cannot drown.


Fishies can be tamed when right-clicked with a fish net and then right-clicked again. After being released from the net, the naming box will appear and it will be tamed to the player as soon as it is named.

Fish bowls

Prior to v8.0.1, fishies could be caught with the use of a fish bowl. They would swim in endless circles when in the bowl.
