Recording Rarities is one of the various side pursuits that can be done in Dredge where players will have to search through the secluded fishing spots of the sea to find and catch rare fishes. Read ahead as we go through all of the locations of where these rare fishes can be found in Dredge.
How to get the Recording Rarities pursuit?
You can start the Recording Rarities pursuit by talking to the Travelling Merchant for the first time, which will most likely be in Gale Cliffs, but it can also be in the pontoons of the other areas.
For this request, the merchant will ask you to catch and Oarfish, a Gulper Eel, a Goliath Tigerfish, and a Coelacanth. You do not have to bring these fishes back to the merchant for them to count to the pursuit as the merchant only needs to see your records for them. Each rare fish record that you report to the merchant will be rewarded with 2 Research parts, for a total of 8 Research Parts.
These fishes can only be caught once per save file and can be sold for a profit.
The Oarfish can be found within the hidden cave behind the waterfall in Gale Cliffs P3. The Oarfish can be caught using an Abyssal fishing rod. You can use the Sampling Device that the Research Assistant will give to you for free or consider researching and purchasing the Bottomless Lines. The Oarfish occupies a 6×2 7-slot L-shape space, so make sure to clear up some boat space.
Gulper Eel Location
The Gulper Eel can be found on the trench near the Research Outpost in Stellar Basin F4. Just look for a huge snake-like silhouette under the water; if another school of fish shows up, try to wait until the next day or night time to refresh the spawn. The Gulper Eel can be caught using a Hadal fishing rod like the Bottomless Lines or the Viscera Crane and it occupies a 4×2 7-slot space.
Goliath Tigerfish Location
The Goliath Tigerfish can be found in a closed off spot in Twisted Strand E12. You will need to use an explosive to clear out the log that has blocked the way. The Goliath Tigerfish can be caught using a Mangrove fishing rod like the Anti-Tangle Line or the Versatile Rod and it occupies a 4×2 8-slot space.
The Coelacanth can be found in a closed off spot in Devil’s spine Q12, near the merchant’s pontoon. Bring an explosive to clear the rubble from the area. The Coelacanth can be caught using an Abyssal fishing rod like the Bottomless Lines or the Fathomless Winch and it occupies a 5×2 7-slot space.
