A Blobfish is one odd-looking fish.

There are different kinds of animals in Stardew Valley. Aside from the cows and fowl you’ll usually encounter when you start playing, wild creatures on land and at sea can also be seen in the game. You can also catch various deep-sea creatures.

One of which is the Blobfish, an odd-looking sea animal floating just above the ocean floor. In this guide, you’ll learn what makes this fish useful and what you’ll need to do if you want to catch it.

What is a Blobfish?

It’s one of the only two deep-sea fishes that have a Floater behavior, which means it tends to move upwards. Its difficulty level is at 75 and can be anywhere between eight and 26 inches.

You’ll benefit from its restoration effects if you consume it. The following table will show you a comparison of its effects depending on its quality.
