Pilchards are small-sized Fish found in Stranded Deep. They can be found dwelling in the shallows around islands. Pilchards can be distinguished from other fish by their small size, as well as their blue coloration.

Pilchards appear to be approximately the same size as a Sardine, but are less common. The player is able to catch a pilchard using a Crude spear or a Fish trap. Once obtained, it can be eaten raw (on .24 all food must be cooked or you get sick) or cooked over a Campfire.
