Fishing is one of the resource gathering skills in Syrnia, and provide the primary resource for the cooking skill. The Syrnia waters are abundant with many different varieties to choose from. Each species is found at different locations throughout the many islands, require specific methods for gathering and have a unique level requirement, which you can see in the quicklists below. Aside from the raw fish you catch, you will also occasionally find other valuable items while fishing such as leather boots and locked tool boxes (to find out exactly the random drops for each fishing location, click on a fishing type in the Action column in the chart below).
At level 1 you can only fish using a net, so equip one and start working by clicking the link in the city menu. Most players start by fishing shrimps at Lisim, since it is located on Remer island. There are however more locations where you can net fish (see the locations chart below).
Tip: if you can find your way to the Singing river (Serpenthelm island), net fishing here gives better experience (and different kinds of fish) than all the other net fishing locations!
At level 5 you can switch to rod fishing, which gives you better experience and access to higher level types of fish (this does not count for fishing at the Singing river, you can continue net fishing and other types of fish become available once you reach the required level for them). Rods can be bought from NPC markets such as Eully market.
Like other resource gathering skills, each player fishing at the same location adds 2 seconds to the timer and maxes out at 15 people. This means the 16th player and above will not add further time. Also worth mentioning is that fishing offers the fastest exp of all the resource gathering skills, especially at the higher levels.
Once you reach fishing level 23, small boat fishing becomes available. For this you need a Small fishing boat. Boat fishing works the same way as other types of fishing, except that you need to have the required boat in your inventory (they cannot be equipped) and that unlike other tools boats do not break. As you level up higher types of boat fishing become available to you (which also means buying a more expensive boat), which in return will allow you to catch better types of fish and gather experience faster. Some types of boat fishing also require you to have a net or a rod equipped.
Tip: a small fishing boat requires 2000 wood and level 20 construction to build, but due to the surplus of small fishing boats in the game players tend to sell than for less than 4,000gp (their wood cost).
Once you have reached level 100 fishing, a special type of boat fishing becomes available: fishing using a Canoe (you also need to have a rod equipped). Canoe fishing is done at Thabis (Anasco island), but is only available after you have completed the Squid of the deep quest. In addition, fishing there is not always available due to high and low tide. It alternates on a daily basis, which means one day you will be able to fish there, and the next you will not be able to, etc. On a sidenote: when fishing is not available, the smokehouse to smoke the Thabis fish is open, and vice versa.
During certain Syrnia events a special species of fish can be caught, the Striped fish. These come in various colours, and can usually be obtained at Holiday lake (Celebration island) by net or rod fishing. They cannot be cooked and are only used for collecting and/or contests during the event. Due to the nature of Syrnia events (what you can do on Celebration island is often very different for each event) it is unpredictable when you are able to catch any of the Striped fish below.
