A Slaughterfish

Slaughterfish are small, hostile fish with razor sharp teeth encountered in bodies of water, both outside and in caves. Slaughterfish are difficult to kill because entering deep water forces you to sheathe your weapons, necessitating attacks from land or shallow water. Their corpses may be looted for slaughterfish scales, while their eggs can only be harvested from clusters found underwater. Dead slaughterfish are found in some dungeons.

With the Hearthfire add-on, you can use slaughterfish eggs to breed non-hostile slaughterfish in the fish hatchery at Windstad Manor.

The Fishing CreationCC makes it possible to fish for slaughterfish and then eat them raw or cooked.


The Hearthfire add-on lets you build a slaughterfish statue on a small base in the trophy room addition of any homestead. The materials needed are:


Also added with Hearthfire, you can create slaughterfish trophies, using 2 slaughterfish scales and leather strips.
