The Garryfish is a small, passive Fauna species, usually found in the Safe Shallows and around the Underwater Islands.

Although Garryfish only yield average Food points when cooked, they move fairly slow, making them easy to catch. For this reason, they are one of the more useful means of nourishment for players in Survival mode.

Garryfish are diurnal, so they are even easier to catch at night because of their already low speed.


The Garryfish has a long, slim, yellow body with brighter yellow vertical stripes. Its tail comprises most of its length. Its body mass is concentrated on the front.

It has a small mouth and stalked eyes situated on top of its head. The caudal fins are much smaller in comparison with the pectoral fins, and all of the fins have a maroon hue with a dull red bioluminescent glow.


The Garryfish is a type of solitary prey and is mostly seen gliding slowly and aimlessly within its vicinity. It ignores the player completely.

Slow-moving and curious herbivore, camouflage indicates adaptation for evasive behavior on the ocean floor.

1. Eye Stalks:
May be beneficial when watching for predators from hiding places amongst the coral.

2. Behavior:
More active during daylight hours, but slow and docile at all times, the garryfish's survival depends on a combination of camouflage and predators who can get a more filling meal elsewhere.
