Stardew Valley: The Ultimate Tuna Guide


Tuna is equivalent to golden fleece in farming simulator as it is one of the rarest fish to catch. The amount of time it takes to catch a tuna does not reflect your fishing skills, but this guide will provide you with the best spots to fish and everything you need to know about tuna in Stardew Valley.

Where to find tuna

Finding the best place to fish for tuna is easy, but it is the wait that you will have to be prepared for. Some are lucky and catch tuna or even a golden tuna relatively quickly, but if it takes you a while to eat something, don’t worry, you are not alone.

The best place to start fishing for tuna is to travel south of Pelican Town towards the ocean. Setting up a fishing spot directly outside of Willy’s Fish Shop is a good idea, so be close to supplies if you need to restock.

Tuna is only available to fish during the summer and winter seasons, between 6 a.m. and 7 p.m., and you can’t fish at night either.

If this method gets too tedious for a day, you can always try trash diving. Tuna rarely breed in garbage cans during the summer or winter, but today could be your lucky day.

How to fish for tuna in Stardew Valley

Tuna can be caught in the game like any other type of fish. Unfortunately, there is no magic technique that will attract tuna to your rod. Persistence is key. If you need help getting started, follow this guide on how to bait your fishing rod.

The fishing process involves equipping your fishing pole, casting the line into the water, and waiting until a fish bites. A bite will be reported with an exclamation point followed by “HIT!”, Which will then start the minigame.

The minigame requires you to hold the rectangle near the moving fish icon until the bar is completely full. It may take a couple of tries to get used to it.

Tuna benefits

Tuna can be strangely used on the spool of sewing machines, to make the sailor shirt.

Tuna can also be put in a fish pond, where they will breed every 3 days. The fish pond has a capacity for 3 fish, but this can increase to 10 when certain missions are completed.
