The Piscatoris Fishing Colony is on the north-western corner of Kandarin. It is accessible through a tunnel near the front gates once a player has completed the Swan Song quest (you need 101 quest points to start this). The colony once thrived on the monkfish industry but has recently come under attack from sea trolls, which has decreased the monkfish supply. Players get a chance to help the town during the Swan Song quest. After completing the quest, players may fish for monkfish at any of the five fishing spots along the colony's northern coast. The colony is a spot to fish for players capable of doing the quest due to the speed and experience associated with monkfish and the proximity to the bank. Tuna and Swordfish can also be harpooned at the colony, although it is used almost exclusively for fishing monkfish, as there are better places for catching the other fish.

Other uses[edit | edit source]

The colony is occasionally used as a base by players using the other attractions of the Piscatoris region. Players who have completed Swan Song sometimes find the bank here useful to withdraw and deposit items. Players can find the following south of the colony: The Piscatoris Hunter area, one of the few hunting zones of RuneScape, a Summoning obelisk, which is located in a cave, and a nearby mine, which is notable for its three iron rocks right next to each other. This makes it an excellent spot for power mining. The Phoenix Lair, which features in the In Pyre Need quest and can be used once a day after the quest to fight the Phoenix for a considerable sum of slayer xp.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Piscatoris is the Latin word for "of the Fishermen"
  • Piscatoris could also be a reference to Lophius piscatorius, the Latin name for a species of commercially fished monkfish.
  • There is a bronze pickaxe and hatchet on the ground inside the gate. They are unique to the player. Once looted by the player, they will not respawn.
