Rocktail detail.png

Rocktail is a type of fish that can be found in the Living Rock Caverns and the Deep Sea Fishing Hub. The Living Rock Caverns are located underneath the Dwarven Mine, which is located under Falador and extends to Ice Mountain. Players need 90 Fishing to catch rocktails and a Cooking level of 93 to cook them. Rocktail are an ingredient in rocktail soup.

They stop burning at level 94 only if wearing cooking gauntlets, or while wearing a cooking cape at level 99. They give 225 Cooking experience per fish which adds to 378,000 experience per hour, or, with decorated cooking urns, 474,000 experience per hour. A series of tests conducted with cooking gauntlets equipped yielded a burn rate of 27 rocktails out of 3,969, or 0.68%, at the minimum level required to cook them (93). Without cooking gauntlets, rocktails burn in high amounts even with a maxed cooking stat boosted to 103 using a Chef's delight.

Rocktail heal up to 2,300 life points, depending on your Constitution level; the optimum healing for rocktail starts at level 92. They can also boost a player's life points by 10% above the maximum.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Rocktails look similar to the real-life anglerfish, which have a luminescent organ in the middle of their heads to lure prey towards them.
  • Rocktails, along with cavefish and sailfish, are some of the few fish which provide more experience when fished than when cooked.
  • Following the release of Deep Sea Fishing, rocktails were surpassed by sailfish as the single-click highest healing fish and the price crashed as a result.
