Herring

The RUST Herring is one of many types of fish that can be caught via the fishing system in RUST and can be consumed for health. Facepunch added fishing as an in-game activity during the Going Deep patch in August of 2021.

Players may eat any fish (if gutted) caught via the Handmade Fishing Rod or Survival Fish Trap, as well as get credit towards the Go Fish mission given out by the Fisherman at any Fishing Village.

In addition to the fishing quest, new fish types are useful in farming when deposited into a Composter or can be gutted directly for raw resources (an excellent source of Low Grade Fuel). Some fish can be turned in directly at Fishing Villages for Scrap while others are better used when fishing to achieve a higher Bait Rating.

Herring can be caught in all water types regardless of depth and require a bait level of 0.5 – 2.5 to catch.
