Raw salmon is a food item that is based on a Sockeye Salmon



The most common way of obtaining raw salmon is fishing. The wait time of one being caught is decreased with the Lure enchantment and the chance of one being caught is slightly decreased with the Luck of the Sea enchantment (named as such because it increases treasure, not fish).

Catching salmon awards 1-6 experience.

Mob drops[edit]

Guardians and Elder Guardians[edit]

Guardians and elder guardians have a 2.5% chance of dropping a random fish upon death. This has a 25% chance of being raw salmon. The chance of getting the fish drop can be increased by 1% per level of Looting, but the type of fish is not affected.

Polar Bears[edit]

Polar bears have a 25% chance to drop 0–2 raw salmon when killed. The maximum amount can be increased by 1 per level of Looting, for a maximum of 0-5 with Looting III.


Salmon will always drop 1 raw salmon in its item form when killed. In Java Edition, if the salmon was killed while on fire, then it will drop cooked salmon instead.

Natural generation[edit]

Raw salmon can be found in 24.2% of village fisherman chests in stacks of 1–3, and in 61.5% of bonus chests in stacks of 1–2.

In Bedrock Edition they can be found in all bonus chests in stacks of 1–2.
