Fishing in Fortnite has remained a huge part of the Battle Royale game ever since it was introduced with the release of Chapter 2. Players have a Fishing Collection, which documents and tracks all the fish that players have managed to catch in Fortnite. Once players have caught a fish, it will be recorded in their collection and it will even be explained where it can be caught on the map. A maximum weight will also be assigned to each fish, giving a rating of one, two or three stars. Players who want to fully complete their collection will start out not knowing how to catch many of the fish available in Fortnite. In the fishing collection, players will see some boxes that are blacked out. To complete these boxes, players must find and catch the specific fish that goes there.
For players who want to try and earn three stars with every fish or just check out their entire fishing collection, they’ll need to know where to find every available fish in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2. The list below will show players exactly this, along with with the rod they need to use to catch the scaly creatures.
All fish in Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 2
In total, there are 28 fish available to catch in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2. This is the number as of April 18, 2022, but players should note that Epic Games is always adding new fish to the game. It is likely that by the time Season 2 ends, there will be more than 28 fish in Fortnite.
For now though, let’s go over where to find the 28 fish currently available on the map.
- Orange, green, blue flopper: The group of Floppers are the most common fish in Fortnite and can be found in any fishing hole on the map with any type of rod.
- black and blue shield fish: The most common type of shield fish, the black and blue version is stuck anywhere on the map with any type of rod.
- Black-striped shield fish: Only found in seaside from Fortnite, which means any fishing spots located along the edge of the map. A popular coastal area for fishing lies just east of Sanctuary. The Black Striped Shield Fish can be fished with any rod.
- pink shield fish: The Pink Shieldfish can be caught anywhere on the map but requires a professional fishing rod roll up
- green shield fish: To match the color of the green shield fish, it can only be trapped in forest areas from fortnite. Basically this means any area with dense tree cover and a fishing hole. While there aren’t many forest areas on the Chapter 2 map, there are some great fishing spots under the trees in The Joneses. Players can use any type of rod to catch this fish.
- light blue shield fish: Completing the Shield Fish is the Light Blue version, which can be stuck anywhere on the map with any rod.

- yellow supper fish: The next Slurpfish can only be caught in swampy areas from fortnite. Fortunately, players can use whatever rod they have.
- purple supper fish: The Purple Slurpfish is trapped in mountainous areas from fortnite. There are several fishing holes in the mountains near Misty Meadows, Retail Row, and Lazy Lake. Again, no special rod is required.

- small black fry: The next version of the Small Fry may also be stuck anywhere on the map but only at night. Players can use any rod for this job.
- small blue fry: The Blue Small Fry is another only coastal area fish. Sweaty Sands, Sanctuary, and any other beach is where players will need to grab their standard or pro fishing rod.
- slurp jellyfish: The first of the jellyfish is the easiest to catch, available anywhere on the map using whatever rod the players can find.

- purple jellyfish: The last of the Jellyfish is the Purple version, found only in seaside but players don’t have to use a professional fishing rod this time.
- Purple and Orange Thermal Fish: Purple and Orange version can be stuck anywhere on the map, but has a larger population around The Joneses POI. A stick of any kind will do.
- thermal crow fish: This type of Thermal Fish you need a professional fishing rod catch. In addition, players have to visit a coastal area to roll it up.
- Green Thermal Fish: The Green Hot Spring Fish has a designated location on the map, being on the south ponds by The Joneses POI. Players can bring any rod with them to this location.

- silver thermal fish: The last fish available in Fortnite, the Silver Thermal Fish needs a professional fishing rod catch. Players can look at deserted zones to catch this type of Thermal Fish.
That’s all the fish currently available in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2. Most of the fish don’t require a professional fishing rod or a specific location, but the ones that do can be difficult to catch. If players are having a hard time catching a certain fish, there’s not much they can do other than look at the list above, go to the right spot with the right rod, and keep trying.
