Fresh monkfish are caught while completing the Swan Song quest. These monkfish heal 1 HP when successfully cooked and then when consumed.

Players are required to have a fishing level of 62 to catch fresh monkfish, however, using fishing potions at level 59 fishing will suffice. An admiral pie also works at Fishing level 57.

During the quest, Arnold Lydspor asks the player to refill the food stocks. It is advisable to fish extra fresh monkfish due to the high likelihood of burning some when cooking.
