Raw karambwanji detail.png

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 are 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 catch. The amount of karambwanji caught depends on the player's Fishing level, increasing every five levels. The exact formula is , meaning players with a Fishing level of 95 or above will catch 20 karambwanji at a time, and boosting beyond 99 will result in 21 karambwanji caught per catch.

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 one of the only stackable fish (The other being minnow) and relatively cheap to obtain, raw karambwanji are very ideal for feeding pet cats.


  • Upon release, raw karambwanji were not stackable. This made fishing raw 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.
    • A further update made it so the player would catch multiple karambwanji at once.
