Raw tarpon detail.png

Raw tarpon is a fish that may be caught on Waiko in the Arc region at level 90 Fishing. They are located at the south dock and are caught along with raw seerfish. They require Wushanko fishing bait to catch, unless the baitless fishing prawn perk has been unlocked at the Prawnbroker. Nine raw tarpons can be cooked into fish oil at level 91 Cooking, or burned to produce a burnt tarpon. It is not recommended to fish these at level 90, as you won't catch any seerfish, so your exp rates will be low.

Raw tarpons may be obtained occasionally from pickpocketing Waiko islanders near the Waiko marketplace, and washed ashore on uncharted isles.

Raw tarpons may be sold for 1 chime each to Fish Oil Sales by speaking with Salmon Max (fish merchant) on Waiko.
