Effectiveness Fishing level requirement Details Other requirements/fishing equipment
***** Level 5 Sardines sell for about 16 coins each if raw, and around 5 coins when cooked. These can be fished from the Catherby shore, the southern shore of Al-Kharid, and Draynor Village.
***** level 10 Herring sells for about 39 coins each if raw, and around 10 coins when cooked. However while fishing these sardines are also caught, worth half as much. These are fished in the same spots as sardines.
***** Level 15 Catch anchovies in the same spot as herring and sardine with a small net. Anchovies sell for about 58 coins each, while the cooked versions sell for 52 coins each. Shrimp is adviseably dropped being worth much less than anchovies.
***** Level 35 Tuna can be caught at level 35 fishing in either Catherby or the Fishing Guild. . They sell for 132 when cooked, and 156 when uncooked. Also the higher your agility the more chance you have of catching two Tuna at a time.
***** Level 38 At this level, cave eel are caught in the same spots as slimy eel. Uncooked cave eels sell for 399 coins each, while cooked they sell for 199.
***** Level 40 Fishing lobsters is a popular way to make money for both free-to-play members and lower level pay-to-play members. There are two popular places to catch them; Karamja or Catherby. Caught at Karamja, bank is quick in TzHaar city, caught in Catherby, Catherby bank is close.
***** Level 50 At this level Swordfish may be caught and sold for 500 when cooked and 571 when uncooked. Tuna, however, is caught with them. Locations include Catherby, Fishing Guild, or Jatizso(completion of The Fremennik Trials required) Also the higher your agility the more chance you have of catching two swordfish at a time.
***** Level 62
Monkfish are found at the Piscatoris Fishing Colony. They tend to be caught faster than sharks, even at high levels, and sell for around 488 coins each when raw, and about 455 coins when cooked. In an hour, 250-320 monkfish are caught, depending on Fishing level. See this monkfish analysis for a breakdown of efficiency. Swan Song completed
***** Level 65 At this level Raw karambwan may be fished, which are worth 640 coins each. Keep in mind that the Karambwan will sometimes steal the bait from the vessel. If this happens often, it lowers profit. Tai Bwo Wannai Trio completed
***** Level 76
At this level sharks may be fished. Sharks are caught fairly slowly even at high levels, so it is advisable not to fish them with a fishing level lower than about 80. Raw sharks sell for around 1,492 coins each, and cooked sharks fetch for about 1,539 coins each. At 95+ Fishing 1,000 sharks are caught in 7 hours or less; on average, only about 150 sharks can be caught in an hour, even with 99 fishing. It is still arguable that this is the best conventional method of making money by fishing except possibly Rocktail fishing. Also the higher your agility the more chance you have of catching two sharks at a time. 80 Cooking (optional)
***** Level 81+
The Fishing Trawler minigame provides Manta rays and/or sea turtles from level 81 if the boat lasts 10 minutes without sinking.  Unlike other fish, cooked sea turtles and manta rays fetch higher prices than their raw counterparts. Cooked manta rays can sell for about 3,101 coins each while cooked sea turtles sell for about 2,738 coins. If the boat doesn't sink, normally approximately 20 manta rays are acquired, leading to 60,000gp every 10 minutes. This is only if the player is with a good team, the boat not sinking. 91 cooking (optional)
***** Level 85 The Living Rock Caverns is an area in the dwarven mines where high level fishers and miners can train their skills. At level 85, you are able to catch a new type of fish - Cavefish. To catch this fish, you will need normal fishing bait and good armour to defend yourself from aggressive high-level rock creatures. A raw cavefish has a market price of 1478 gold pieces and a cooked cavefish sells for 1577 gold pieces. You can gain 40,000-50,000 experience per hour fishing Cavefish and 150,000-200,000 cash.

88 Cooking (optional)

***** Level 90 Just like Cavefish, you can catch another high levelled fish in the Living Rock Caverns - Rocktail. To catch this fish, you will need some bait called Living Minerals. The market price of living minerals is currently 164gp (6th Feb 2010). Again, you will need some good armour to defend yourself from the aggressive living rock creatures. The market price for raw rocktail is 2547gp and the price for cooked rocktail is 2517gp. This is much faster experience per hour than lobsters and monkfish, reaching to 60,000 xp/h maximum. You are able to make over 250,000 gold pieces per hour using this method.

93 Cooking (optional)
