It can be harvested from
Usage[edit | edit source]
Raw Prime Fish Meat can be used in taming certain carnivorous dinosaurs, but with a lower efficiency than regular Raw Prime Meat. However, when taming Spinosaurus, Baryonyx, or Pelagornis, Raw Prime Fish Meat has the same efficiency as Raw Prime Meat, and in fact must be used over its normal meat counterpart. Raw prime fish meat is cooked over a campfire for a period of 20 seconds.
Gathering[edit | edit source]
Raw Prime Fish Meat can be effectively gathered using a metal sickle.

Notes/Trivia[edit | edit source]
- There is currently a bug on Xbox One preventing players from collecting raw prime fish meat on many mounted dinos. Though it is still possible by using a sword, sickle or metal pick.
- Unlike other rare drops which drop more frequently when harvested by a pick, a hatchet is more effective in cutting prime fish meat from a dead shark or Dunkleosteus.
- Raw Prime Fish Meat resembles the sashimi fish meat, which can be eaten safely in both real-life and game as long as it is fresh (less harmful than other raw meat counterpart).
