This article is about cooked monkfish. For the raw form, see Raw monkfish.

Monkfish detail.png

Monkfish can be fished in Piscatoris (code AKQ) by players who have a Fishing level of 62 or higher, and have completed the Swan Song quest. They require a Cooking level of 62 to cook, and heal 16 Hitpoints.

Monkfish grant 120 Fishing experience per catch and are caught using a small fishing net. Successfully cooking a raw monkfish yields 150 Cooking experience.

Players will stop burning monkfish at level 92 normally, 90 with Cooking gauntlets, and 82 with the gauntlets at Hosidius Kitchen. Cooking monkfish gives approximately 200,000 experience per hour at level 90 with no/few burns.

With Cooking Gauntlets, and using the Hosidius Kitchen, the burning of Monkfish, diminishes by a lot, almost as soon as Cooking Level 68 (420 cooked with only 5 burns and another testing of 361 at level 68, burning only 3).

Catching and cooking a monkfish is needed for the hard Western Provinces Diary.
