Frontosa are medium-sized fish found in Stranded Deep. They can be found dwelling relatively close to islands in the shallows. Frontosa can be distinguished from other fish by their shimmering blue coloration, as well as their bulbous heads.

Players are able to catch a frontosa with the use of a crude spear or a fish trap. Once obtained, it can be eaten raw or cooked over a campfire.


  • The frontosa is likely a placeholder creature; cyphotilapia species are endemic to Lake Tanganyika in East Africa, and cannot be found in the Pacific.
