This article is about Fish (Mob). For a list of all types of fish in Minecraft, see Fish (disambiguation).

Fish are a mob planned to be added to Minecraft in the upcoming 1.13 - The Update Aquatic (not to be confused with the fish Items already available in-game).


Notch mentioned that he was considering adding fish to Minecraft as part of the Halloween Update. These mobs would presumably Spawn in Water with an actual 3D model.


A fish mob.

In theory, a player would be able to slay this mob, which could then be cooked.

Instead of this mob version, 2D
Raw Fish
items were added to the game. These can be caught with a Fishing Rod. These raw fish appear to serve the same purpose as a fish mob would have served, and Notch has since left Mojang, so for a while, it seemed unlikely players would see mobs such as these implemented. However, several years later in early 2018, The Update Aquatic was announced, which included plans to finally implement these fish in a mob form.


  • In 2013 Jeb stated on Reddit that he would like to add more animals, including fish, to Minecraft.[1] However, no timeline was given.
