The Secret Fish

This guide covers how to get all the Secret Fish required for the following achievements: Secret Fish of Mechagon and Secret Fish and Where to Find Them.

Completing the achievement Secret Fish of Mechagon rewards you with the Secret Fish Goggles which allows you to find secret fish throughout Azeroth. Completing the achievement Secret Fish and Where to Find Them rewards you with the Hyper-Compressed Ocean toy, which creates a huge water sphere that you can fish in for 15 minutes.

Secret Fish of Mechagon

The Secret Fish of Mechagon achievement requires you to catch and deliver ten fish to Danielle Anglers.

Discord User Kiingy#2452 has made a map showing where to catch these fish within Mechagon. When you catch them you will auto-accept a quest to deliver that fish to Danielle Anglers.

Secret Fish and Where to Find Them

To complete the achievement Secret Fish and Where to Find Them you will have to use the Secret Fish Goggles.

While you have the goggles on, a random fish will spawn within 40 yards of you every 30 seconds. Once you catch it there is a chance you will receive "a rare secret fish" that is required for the achievement.

Common Fish

You can find the following fish in any zone. There's no need to focus on these fish as you'll probably have them all by the time you're done with the others.

Tip: The best place to farm these fish is on top of one of the floating rocks in Nagrand (Outland). Stay near the edge on either side of the rock as shown in the picture below and the fish will spawn on the other side.

Time Scheduled Fish

Ghost Fish

You can find the following fish only while dead. Make sure to get the buff from the Secret Fish Goggles before falling down.

Tip: One of the best places to catch these fish is the floating island south of Dalaran (Broken Isles). Stay on the edge of the island and the fish will spawn around your character.

Zone Specific Fish

You can find the following fish only in specific zones throughout the world.

Note: Some fish may bug out and you might not be able to catch them, this issue has been reported for Neverest Pinnacle and Nordrassil. To fix it make sure you approach the zone on foot, without flying or riding a mount.

Hyper-Compressed Ocean

The reward for completing the achievement Secret Fish and Where to Find Them is the Hyper-Compressed Ocean toy!

The Hyper-Compressed Ocean toy creates a huge water sphere that you can fish in for 15 minutes. The loot table for the fish is the same as the loot table for the zone in which you are using the toy.

We'd like to give a big shout-out to Discord User Kiingy#2452 for putting in hours of work and finding most of the secret fish on the Public Test Realm even before Patch 8.2 Rise of Azshara went live.
