Prawn balls detail.png

Prawn balls are an item regularly obtained whilst Fishing, requiring level 63 Construction, and can be toggled on or off in the Skills & Experience section, under Construction, in Settings. When opened, players receive various items used to decorate the aquarium of a player-owned house. Up to 60 prawn balls can be opened at a time.

Although the Aquarium, Prawnbroker and Diving suit can all be built with a boosted stat, Prawn Balls can not be obtained without an unboosted level of 63 in construction.

Prawn balls are earned for every 35,000 life points worth of fish caught. The life point threshold can be reduced with prawn perks. Catches from divine locations do not count toward the threshold, nor does catching fish for Fisherman Frodi for Managing Miscellania.

Each time a prawn ball is earned, there is a 10% chance a prawn cracker will be received instead. Fish that can't be consumed, like leaping fish, have an artificial value of life points assigned to them.

Players with level 99 Fishing can get 50 prawn balls by speaking to the prawnbroker.

The total number of prawn balls a player has received can be viewed by right-clicking the bathysphere in an aquarium and selecting "View fish list".
