Fishing is one of the 12 Skills available for players to level up by performing certain actions that give them Fishing XP.
Roman Numerals are used to express its levels in-game.
Although Fishing goes from levels 1-50, 50 XP is required to reach the first level, meaning there is a "level 0," just like all other Skills.
Leveling up Fishing Skill will give the player:
- Increased chance to fish up treasure.
- Ability to fish up tougher and more valuable Sea Creatures.
- The ability to use better fishing gear, such as Challenging Rod, Rod of the Sea, Soul Whip, Phantom Rod, Yeti Rod, Salmon Armor, and Shark Scale Armor.

When fishing, players have a chance to catch a Sea Creature. Sea Creatures are mobs which drop Fishing loot and Fishing XP when killed. The player's
Sea Creature Chance determines the chance they have to catch a Sea Creature.
As a player increases their fishing level, they unlock stronger creatures that give more XP and better loot. Killing sea creatures on the private island does not provide fishing XP.
Sea Creatures cannot be damaged with arrows directly, except those shot from Prismarine Bow.
Runic sea creatures have a 50% chance to drop a Wake Rune upon death.
