|“||You're not the only new explorer of the updated oceans, mind. We've filled the seas with new types of fish! Above is the delightful pufferfish, which filled me with delightful poison because I was too busy taking that screenshot to swim away in time :(||„|
|— Tom Stone|
Fish spawn underwater at a Y level of 12-32.
Pufferfish spawn in lukewarm, warm, and deep lukewarm oceans in groups of 3-5 (groups of 1-3 for random-pattern tropical fish). In Bedrock Edition, they spawn only in warm ocean biomes.
Fish drop 1 of their item form when killed:
- 1 pufferfish
- 1 bone meal (5% chance) [Java Edition only]
- 1-2 bones (25% chance) [Bedrock, and Legacy Console editions only]
- 1-2 experience orbs when killed by a player or tamed wolf.
The player may collect a fish by using a water bucket on it, which gives the player a bucket of fish. Fish placed with buckets will not despawn naturally. When that fish bucket is used against a block, it empties the bucket, placing water with that fish swimming in it. An empty bucket may be used as well.[Legacy Console, and Bedrock editions only]
None of the fish are able to survive out of water. Outside of water, they flop around like guardians for a while until eventually they start to suffocate and die like squid. In Bedrock Edition and Legacy Console Edition, they will rotate when flipping. Fish cannot swim or breathe in cauldron water.
Pufferfish will puff up when approached by a player in Survival or Adventure mode, drowned, or any non-water mob in a 5x5x5 cube around the fish, going from unpuffed, then semi-puffed, to fully puffed[Java Edition only], or instantly to the fully-puffed state[Legacy Console, and Bedrock editions only]. Pufferfish are technically passive mobs but going near one when fully puffed will inflict the player/mob with seven seconds of Poison, and touching them in their puffed form will deal damage separate from the poison. Pufferfish also instantly puff up to their fullest form after taking any kind of damage.[Bedrock Edition only]
Pufferfish have additional entity data, beyond what other fish have.
- Entity data
- Tags common to all entities see Template:Nbt inherit/entity/template
- Tags common to all mobs see Template:Nbt inherit/mob/template
- FromBucket: 1 or 0 (true/false) - Whether the fish had ever been released from a bucket.
- PuffState: A value from 0–2. 0 means the fish is deflated, 1 means it is halfway puffed-up, and 2 means it is fully puffed-up.
