What are Legendary Fish in Stardew Valley?
The legendary fish in Stardew Valley are unique fish that you can only catch once. After that, you may never catch them again. This is one of the only reasons why you might consider twice before selling them.
There are 10 legendary fish in Stardew Valley. Five of them can be caught at any time as long as you meet the required Fishing level, while the latter will become available in one of the late-game quests:
- Angler / Ms. Angler
- Crimsonfish / Son of Crimsonfish
- Glacierfish / Glacierfish Jr.
- Legend / Legend II
- Mutant Carp / Radioactive Carp
All of these legendary fish have a special location where you can catch them and even season-specific requirements. Unfortunately, even if you meet most of their requirements, you will still have an extremely low chance to catch them.
Legendary fish can also have different rarity qualities, which means two players can catch the same legendary fish, but one would be worth more than the other. You can get the “Legend” with a silver star or an iridium star.
