Sharks can be fished by players who have level 76 Fishing or higher and requires level 80 Cooking to cook. They heal 20 hitpoints each. Sharks are fished with harpoons. They can also be fished without harpoons (with the Barbarian Fishing method) but require a Fishing level of 96 and a Strength level of 76 and partial completion of Barbarian Training.
Sharks give 110 Fishing experience per catch and 210 Cooking experience when cooked. Players stop burning sharks at level 99 Cooking with a Cooking cape equipped, level 94 when wearing cooking gauntlets or level 89 when wearing cooking gauntlets while cooking at the Hosidius House kitchen. Cooking raw sharks with cooking gauntlets at level 93 yields a 1% burn rate.
Sharks are a popular food item in Old School RuneScape, as they are high-healing and can be easily caught in large amounts. Because of this sharks are widely used for player killing, general monster killing and quests.
