Lanternfish is a food item and brewing ingredient that can be eaten or cooked in a furnace, smoker, or campfire to make Cooked Lanternfish. It is eaten quickly similarly to dried kelp.


Mob loot

Lanternfish are the only mob to always drop 1 Lanternfish in its item form upon death. The maximum amount cannot be increased with Looting. If killed while on fire, they drop Cooked Lanternfish instead.



To eat a Lanternfish in its item form, press and hold your use button while it is selected in your hotbar. Eating it will restore 1 (🍗) hunger and 0.35 hunger saturation.

A player can consume Lanternfish about twice as fast as most food items in the game.
