The Fish Trap is a craftable item in Stranded Deep.

After the trap is baited, it can be placed in any part of the ocean to catch fish. It will catch a random Legs on the waters the fish trap is placed in (e.g. if placed in shallow waters, it will only catch small fish, such as sardines).

Currently, it seems that only one bait item can be attached; attempting to add more will show up visually, but will have no effect. Similarly, only one fish may be caught at a time. If more than one bait is added to the trap, the game can be saved and reloaded to catch another fish, consuming all bait in the trap.


  • The trap should be placed in deeper waters to catch larger fish, such as the cod.

Notes Edit

  • The fish trap is used to catch fish for now, but will later be updated to catch other aquatic animals such as crabs, crayfish etc.
