Strange fish

There are 25 different fishing achievements up for grab in Tamriel.  One for every region. One for every faction. One for getting them all.

ESO Fishing Guide

Boat with fish under it.

The legendary ingredient, Perfect Roe, is currently fetching a high price and harvesting it is a lucrative activity. There are four types of water fish can be found and particular bait must be used at the right location to obtain the best results.   Fishing parties looking for rare fish should limit their group to 4 or 5 people.
