Can you breed fish in Minecraft? [EXPLAINED]


Minecraft is quite a popular game in the entire gaming world. 

It has a large number of players which keeps on increasing every single day! 

When a player plays the game, numerous questions come to the player's mind. 

One of the most common questions that comes to the players' minds is whether one can breed fish in Minecraft.

So, can you breed fish in Minecraft? 

No, you cannot breed fish in Minecraft. Fishes spawn automatically in the water and cannot be bred in the game. 

There are no small baby fishes in Minecraft. However, fishes generally spawn naturally in ocean biomes. 

In this article, I've answered this question in more detail. 

I've also answered some related questions that are quite common among Minecraft players.

So, without any further ado, let's get into it! 

Can you really breed fish in Minecraft?

It is not possible to breed fish in Minecraft. 

Fishes spawn naturally in the ocean biomes in the game.

However, one can spawn a fish manually in the creative mode in Minecraft. 

But, in the survival mode, one would not be able to do so. 

The next question that I've answered is regarding spawning fishes manually in Minecraft's creative mode. 

How to spawn fishes manually in Creative Mode in Minecraft

To spawn fishes manually in Minecraft's creative mode, you would require fish spawn eggs. 

There would be different spawn eggs for different fishes. 

For example, you would require a Salmon Fish spawn egg for spawning a Salmon Fish. 

Similarly, you need a Pufferfish spawn egg for spawning a Pufferfish.

After you acquire the spawn egg for a particular fish, you need to find a suitable place (preferably a water body) for spawning the fish.

Then, left-click on the selected place where you want to spawn the fish and then, the fish will be spawned.  

Now, if you're a survival player, you would want to know where you can find naturally spawned fishes in the survival mode of Minecraft! 

So, I've answered that question as well, in this article! 

Where do fishes naturally spawn in Survival Mode in Minecraft?

All the fishes in Minecraft generally spawn in oceans while Salmon fishes spawn in rivers. 

Different fishes usually spawn in different water regions. 

For example, Cod fishes spawn in normal, cold, and lukewarm oceans. 

On the other hand, Pufferfishes spawn in warm and lukewarm ocean biomes.

You can check out this page in Minecraft Fandom where the spawning regions of the fishes in the game are listed.
