How to Catch Aberrant Fish in Dredge

Looking for Aberrant fish in Dredge? Here's how to catch them.

Aberrant Fish is just one of many species of fish in Dredge, the Lovecraftian adventure game. Sometimes, these critters are a little different than usual, with this specific variety having mutated in some way. However, they’re worth catching because they can be sold at a high price. Here’s where to find and catch Aberrant Fish.

Where to Find Aberrant Fish in Dredge

Aberrant Fish can be found at the same fishing spots as regular fish. The key to catching them is to look for a greenish mist and multicolored sparkles above fishing spots.

Aberrant Fish could be the first fish you bring up or the last, but as long as the shimmer is there, the fish can be caught. 

Each type of fish has multiple Aberrant versions in the Encyclopedia. You can tell a fish is Aberrant in your cargo or storage by its dark purple background. Depending on the Aberrant that ends up in your cargo, it may spread disease to your other fish, so keep that in mind.

The first time you catch an Aberrant Fish, it will most likely be a Squid. You’ll get a Pursuit to bring the fish to the Fishmonger. He’ll end up taking a Handkerchief from inside it but pay you more for it, as well.

If you purchased the Blackstone Key DLC, the Sign of Ruin increases your chance of encountering Aberrant fish. This is a quick way to make money if you can bring in multiple Aberrant fish per haul. 

If your Psyche is low, you can sometimes get attacked by an Aberrant fish. While getting scared and having a bad Psyche is not recommended, it can be something to try every now and again if you’re looking for this specific type of catch. 

That’s how to catch an Aberrant fish in Dredge. For other guides and tips articles, check out our Dredge library.
