Discus are small-sized fish found in Stranded Deep. They can be found dwelling in the shallows. Discus can be distinguished from other fish by their contrasting colors and 'disc'-like shape.

The player is able to catch a discus using a crude spear or a fish trap. Once obtained, it can be eaten raw or cooked over a campfire.


  • I just ate a Discus raw and got food poisoning.
  • The discus is likely a placeholder creature; discus fish in real-life are a freshwater-exclusive species, and can only be found in the Amazon River.
