It is possible to catch fish from raw shrimps all the way to raw sailfish. The player's Fishing level determines the fish that are caught. Like the Ourania Runecrafting Altar, it is possible to catch fish you normally cannot catch, but with a relatively narrow range. For example, raw sailfish can be caught without 97 Fishing, but it is more common at higher levels; by 94 Fishing, sailfish amounts to about a third of the catch, while any fish lower than raw cavefish (85 Fishing) is very rare. Boosted or drained Fishing level doesn't seem to affect the quality of the fish.
Based on a sample of 11,045 fish, at 99 Fishing players may expect to catch raw sailfish 64.1% of the time, raw blue blubber jellyfish 22.2% of the time, raw rocktails 10.2% of the time, raw cavefish 3.0% of the time and raw manta rays 0.5% of the time.
Fishing at the swarm yields around 130,000 experience per hour at level 99 Fishing. The nearby magical net is useful for quickly banking the fish caught.
Unlike other fishing spots, the swarm does not move, but instead, players will occasionally stop fishing with the message: "A fish snags against the net."
