Xenacanthus
360  Rivers 
This massive predator has haunted the nightmares of Gyr Abanians for generations as the legendary “impaler of Timmon Beck,” thanks to its centuries-old legacy of terrorizing smallfolk attempting to do their washing.

Scholars have yet to determine the functionality of the massive spine that protrudes from the specimen's head, reaching back almost to its dorsal fin. Some claim it to be a means of delivering poison to would-be predators, while others suggest it may be an antenna that aids in the location of prey.
Drepanaspis
370  Lakes 
Perhaps the greatest catch to be found at Grymm & Enid, the drepanaspis is so rare that, until now, no one was sure that one could be found at Grymm & Enid.

Lack of a fully developed jawbone has forced this fish to find other ways to feed─namely by swallowing up large swaths of seafloor mud to sup on the insignificant species that wriggle and writhe within. As such, the drepanaspis exhibits no interest in normal prey, making it a difficult catch for enterprising fishers.
Stethacanthus
370  Salt Lakes 
The size of the growths on this stethacanthus indicate that it may be the oldest still in existence─and also why it has come to be known as the “Loch Seld monster.”

Male stethacanthus vie for reproductive supremacy amongst their species by focusing internal aetherial energy to engender queer saline growths upon their dorsal fins─the size of which is the sole factor in the females' selection of a suitable mate. The crystals can swell to sizes so large that they oft render the wavekin completely motionless.
The Ruby Dragon
380  Deep Sea 
This legendary king of the deep is known to all who have ever come near the Ruby Price─and yes, it is a dragon. Or at least it quite closely resembles one.

Its name known to strike fear into babes and fishers alike, tales of this saltwater legend have been told for nigh on a thousand summers. The most popular telling has that the Ruby Dragon was once a great auspice who willingly succumbed to the aramitama that he might be freed from its burden.
Warden of the Seven Hues
380  Lakes 
Though beautiful, this polychromatic carp ruled Prism Lake with an iron fin...until now.

Supposedly spawned white as bone, local legend attributes this uncanny carp's now brilliantly colored scales to extended exposure to the waters of Prism Lake.
The Unconditional
370  Lakes 
Not so much a lord as a god of Dotharl Khaa, this particular specimen is thought to be a blessing sent by the Dusk Mother and Dawn Father themselves. As such, this catch might be best left unboasted of.

Possessed of both a dorsal fin not unlike a crescent moon, and a tail fin not unlike the rising sun, this distinctive wavekin is believed by nomads of the Azim Steppe to be the corporeal manifestation of the Dusk Mother and Dawn Father's love for their children on Hydaelyn.

Eighteyes Eel
290  Lakes 
Named for the markings that run down each side of its head, although its circular maw lined with serrated teeth is perhaps more worthy of attention.

The seven sets of small fins arranged along its length were first believed to be eyes, lending this wavekin its name. Its secretions are said to be effective against ocular ailments—it would seem its discoverer did not think to rub their eyes with eel oil before leaping to judgment.
Creamy Oyster
400  Coastlines 
While the texture of many species of oyster could be described as “creamy,” there is only one specifically named for this quality.

Named for its pale white hue and rich, buttery flavor, the creamy oyster is more than a mere delicacy—the curators of the Cabinet of Curiosity have discovered they have curative properties too, being particularly effective against unwelcome eating habits.
Brightmirror Clam
406  Rivers 
These rare bivalve mollusks are harvested more for their shells than for their meat, as the inner nacre can be used as a form of naturally occurring mirror.

These clams, whose inner nacre can be polished to a mirror sheen, were common throughout the Kingdom of Voeburt. Looking glasses crafted from their shells were fashionable with the ladies of the Voeburtite court before its fall.
Amber Monkfish
415  Sands 
Fish can adapt to the most unlikely of environments, as this repulsive sand-dweller amply proves. It spends most of its adult life burrowing through the sands of Amh Araeng searching for moisture and snaring unsuspecting prey in its fearsome jaws.

Swimming through the golden sands of Amh Araeng, this fish's camouflaged coloration provides protection against predators. To defend against the desert heat, it deposits a thick layer of fat beneath its skin, making its steaks something of a delicacy.
Calico Trout
406   
The beautiful markings and coloration of this elusive species are known to cause pangs of guilt in those who catch one, shortly before they bash it over the head and gut it.
Prospero Eel
430   
This species native to the Tempest is believed by locals to possess the ability to control the elements using some form of innate magic. This may, however, be no more than a ruse invented by the Ondo to keep intruders out of their waters.
Crystarium Tetra
395  Lakes 
This small freshwater fish raised in the Crystarium is, appropriately, a shade of blue resembling that of the Crystal Tower.

A fish with lustrous blue scales, like the light that dapples the streets of the Crystarium. None know for sure whether this is a deliberate form of camouflage, or if the unfortunate fish have been displaced into the one location where their mating displays blend into their surroundings.
