See § Data values
Tropical fish is a food item that cannot be cooked.
The most common way of obtaining tropical fish 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).
Guardians and Elder Guardians
Guardians and elder guardians drop a random fish as a rare drop besides the common raw cod drop. This has a 2% chance of being tropical fish. The chance of getting a fish can be increased with looting, but the type of fish is not affected.
Tropical fish will always drop 1 tropical fish in its item form when killed.
Tropical fish can be used to tame ocelots into cats,[Legacy Console Edition only] get cats off of chests and beds, breed cats, make baby cats grow up faster by 10% of the remaining time, and help gain an ocelot's trust[Java, Bedrock and PlayStation 4 editions only].
Expert-level fisherman villagers have a 1⁄7 chance to buy a single tropical fish for one emerald.[Bedrock Edition only]
Expert-level fisherman villagers will always buy 6 tropical fish for an emerald.[Java Edition only]
