Unlocking Abyssal and Hadal Fishing Catches Explained

To gain access to Abyssal fish, you’ll need to complete the first part of the Collect All Samples Pursuit. This quest is given to you by the Research Assistant in the Stellar Basin region of the Old Fortress. The coordinates for the Old Fortress are D5.

The Research Assistant will ask you to catch and bring back: 

  • Aurora Jellyfish x1
  • Firefly Squid x1
  • Glowing Octopus x1

Aberrant versions of fish don’t count toward this Pursuit. Instead, the fish need to be of the normal variety. 

Once you’ve caught the fish you need, bring them back to complete this stage of the Pursuit. The Research Assistant will then send you to the Research Outpost, located right on the line between coordinates F4 and G4.

Here, you’ll need to obtain Prototype Parts, which can be found by investigating the Laboratory. 

When you return to the Research Assistant with the Prototype Parts, they’ll give you the Sampling Device. This allows you to catch Abyssal fish. With this item, you can now research the Bottomless Lines under Rods using x1 Research Parts. You’ll then need to purchase and install Bottomless Lines to actually catch Abyssal and Hadal fish. 

That’s how you unlock the ability to catch Abyssal and Hadal fish in Dredge. For more Pursuit guides, item locations, or fishing guides, check out our guides page
