In the vibrant world of Stardew Valley, players encounter various creatures, both on land and at sea. One particularly intriguing deep-sea fish is the Blobfish. This guide aims to explore the peculiarities of this fish, its benefits, and how to catch it in the game.
Understanding the Blobfish
Stardew Valley offers players a vibrant and immersive world of diverse creatures and farming opportunities. The Blobfish is among the most intriguing creatures players can encounter, known for its peculiar appearance and behavior.
Description and Appearance
The Blobfish is undoubtedly an odd-looking creature floating just above the ocean floor. Its gelatinous and droopy appearance stands out among the other fish in Stardew Valley. Its distinct features contribute to its allure and intrigue.
However, unlike real Blobfish, these creatures do not have specific dietary requirements. They do not eat or consume anything in Stardew Valley, as they are primarily catchable fish for players to utilize in various ways.
Unique Behavior and Difficulty Level
The Blobfish is one of the only two deep-sea fishes in the game that exhibit a Floater behavior, causing them to move upwards faster. This behavior adds an element of challenge to catch them. With a difficulty level of 75, the Blobfish can range in size from 8 to 26 inches.
Catching a Blobfish
When it comes to catching a Blobfish, players can find them in one specific location and season in the game.
Blobfish can be caught using a fishing rod in the Night Market submarine, which is only present during Winter 15 to 17, from 5PM to 2AM. A payment of 1,000g is needed for the submarine to go deep-sea fishing.
Using the appropriate fishing methods and equipment, such as bait and tackle, can increase the chances of successfully hooking a Blobfish. Increase these chances by consuming food that adds Fishing buffs, such as Fish Taco or Dish O’ The Sea.
What Do Blobfish Consume or Eat?
In Stardew Valley, Blobfish do not have specific dietary requirements or food preferences. Unlike some other animals in the game, like cows or chickens. However, Blobfish require certain items when increasing population in a fish pond every 4 days:

2 Sea Urchins or
