Raw karambwanji detail

Raw karambwanji are used as bait to catch raw karambwan. Players must load a raw karambwanji into a karambwan vessel and then use the vessel with one of the karambwan fishing locations in the north-east of Karamja.

They require a Fishing level of 5 to be caught. They may be caught using a small fishing net, in the lake south of Tai Bwo Wannai Village and north-west of Shilo Village, granting 5 Fishing experience per fish caught. Two are caught at a time; this increases by one every five Fishing levels, meaning a player with level 95 Fishing will catch 20 karambwanji at a time.

Raw karambwanji can be ground into raw karambwanji paste, which is used in the Tai Bwo Wannai Trio quest.

Raw karambwanji may be bought from Tiadeche for 10gp each after completing Tai Bwo Wannai Trio. He stocks 50 per world.

Due to being the only stackable fish (excluding minnow), raw karambwanji are very ideal for feeding pet cats.

Fishing locationsEdit

There is only one location where karambwanji may be caught:


  • Upon release, raw karambwanji were not stackable. This made fishing karambwan tedious, as it was required to be used as bait. This was changed in an update on 10 August 2017. The same update also removed its cooked variant, to prevent creating a stackable food source.
