Cavefish is a type of fish that can only be found in the Living Rock Caverns. The Living Rock Caverns are located underneath the Dwarven Mine, which is located under Falador and extends to Ice Mountain. In order to fish raw cavefish you will need a fishing rod (not a fly fishing rod) and normal fishing bait. Players who wish to catch Cavefish should beware of the high level Living rock creatures in the area. Fishing with other players can be safer for an individual by spreading the creatures' attacks out amongst the group. Prior to the world list update, worlds 84, 77, and 88 were the unofficial Living Rock Caverns worlds. As of the world list update, world 84 is the official living rock caverns world.

Enter your Constitution level name=skillstat_Constitution_level|type=int|value=1|range=1,99|sublist=calchealing name=healing|type=output

let(base,88) let(hp,skillstat_Constitution_level) if(hp < base){




} let(healing,"Cavefish will heal " + heal + " life points at level "+hp+".")

They heal up to 2200 life points, depending on your Constitution level (up to your max life points) and boost a random combat skill (attack, strength, defence, ranged, or magic) by 2 points. Cavefish, like all other fish, are consumed in one bite.

Players need 85 Fishing to catch cavefish, and 88 Cooking to cook them. Fishing Cavefish yields 300 experience, while cooking yields 214 experience. Players wearing cooking gauntlets will stop burning Cavefish at level 94 Cooking. By cooking cavefish, players will receive ~269k experience/hour, which is slightly more than sharks.
