How to catch the ancient fish in Palia

The Ancient Fish gets unlocked only after you complete the Vault of Waves quest in Palia. This quest is given by Jina after you complete the Echoes of the Unknown quest. During this quest, you basically have to bring in four bundles of items. Once you do this, you will get the Something in the Water achievement, and the Ancient Fish will be released.

You can find this fish in the Fisherman’s Lagoon at Kilima Village. To catch it, you will need a Glow Worm trait. This is a special type of bait that you can either get from a Glow Worm Farm or just buy from Einar after you reach Level 7 Fishing. It will cost 25 Gold.

You can fish for it all day. However, it is a rare fish, so be patient and don’t lose hope! The Ancient Fish is going to be purple in color and is really big when compared to other fish you can find.
