Salmon can be found in almost every flowing body of water. Locations with guaranteed jumping salmon are:

Two unique dead salmon yield roe when harvested. Their location is:

Salmon that swim in shallow water (areas that are marked as pond water), such as the area near the East Empire Company Warehouse near Solitude or the fish hatchery at Windstad Manor, will yield salmon roe when "killed". They will not yield roe if they are simply harvested.


  • The waterbreathing effect of salmon roe is valued at 15.4 times higher than it is for other alchemical ingredients. Thus, any waterbreathing potion with roe as a component will be extraordinarily valuable.
  • The fortify magicka duration is only 5 seconds, while the waterbreathing effect is 60 seconds. These values are swapped with one another, as Fortify Magicka is normally 60 seconds, while Waterbreathing is normally 5.
  • The Unofficial Patches corrected these effects to be in line with other similar ones in the game, until it was discovered that the strange numbers, high value, and swapping of timers were, in fact, intentionally done by the game development team.
