Find out everything you need to know about sabertooth salmon in our ARK: Survival Evolved guide. But also how to catch it, tame it and what to feed it.
You’ll find Sabertooth Salmon on all ARK maps in rivers or lakes, where they often travel in a small swarm.
This is the Sabertooth Salmon in ARK: Survival Evolved.
Appearance: Sabertooth Salmon are relatively large for a fish, but are still one of the smallest creatures in ARK, when compared to other animals in size. Their large, sharp teeth, which grow at the tip of their mouths, are especially striking.
Wild: As soon as something larger than itself enters the water, the Sabretooth Salmon will flee, even in a swarm. This means that he will also swim away from you. But don’t make the mistake of underestimating him, because if you hit him and he survives, all of his teammates will come after your head.
A Sabertooth Salmon won’t do much damage, but an aggressive swarm that locks you in can cost you your life.
Domesticated: Once you’ve tamed a Sabertooth Salmon, you can keep it as a pet or harvest it for Raw Fish Meat or Premium Raw Fish Meat.
