Fish are a type of aquatic animal that can be caught with a Fishing Rod using bait (or a Lure Rod using lures) while fishing in the Dark Cloud series. In Dark Cloud, Fish have no practical use, but the FP (Fishing Points) gained by catching fish can be exchanged for rare items. In Dark Chronicle, Fish can be cooked on a Cooking Stove, submitted for weigh-ins at a Fishing Contest, or entered in the Finny Frenzy races. An aquarium is needed to raise and feed fish.
The Cooking Stove can be bought for 300 Gilda from Morton's Sundries, and is available right away, although it is functionally useless without caught fish. Fish must be in the inventory, and not the aquarium, to be cooked. Each cooked fish heals 24 hit points, which can be a cheap source of health regeneration early on when you have a surplus of fish with no purpose. Later on it becomes less useful when the health needed to be restored becomes much larger, and other more convenient items are available. When bought it can also not be removed from the inventory.
