Raw sardine detail

Raw sardines are fish that require a Fishing level of 5 to catch by using a normal fishing rod on a bait fishing spot, by the sea. Fishing bait is required in the inventory, one being used for each catch, which yields 20 Fishing experience. Raw sardines may be cooked at level 1 Cooking to produce cooked sardines.

In the quest Gertrude's Cat, players have to rub a sardine with doogle leaves to feed Gertrude's lost cat. This creates a Seasoned sardine.

In Creature Creation a spidine (42) is made from 1 red spiders' eggs and 1 raw sardine.

Sardines may be bought from Gerrant's Fishy Business as well as Lovecraft's Tackle for 10 coins each.
