Get ready, Stardew Valley fans! This article is going to teach you everything you need to know about how to get caviar in your favorite farming game. From constructing a fish pond to understanding fish type requirements and more, we’re diving into the luxurious world of caviar in Stardew Valley. Time to break out your virtual crackers!
Step 1: Constructing Your Very Own Fish Pond
First things first: to get caviar in Stardew Valley, you’ll need a fish pond. But how do you go about constructing one? Fear not, dear reader! We’re here to help.
To construct a fish pond, you’ll need to gather the following materials:
- 200 Stone
- 5 Seaweed
- 5 Green Algae
Once you’ve got your materials, head over to Robin’s Carpenter Shop and choose the “Construct Farm Buildings” option. From there, select the fish pond, and pick a spot on your farm for it to be built. After a few days, your fish pond will be ready for action!
Step 2: Understanding Fish Type Requirements
Alright, so you’ve got your fish pond. Now what? It’s time to learn about fish type requirements!
To get caviar, you’ll need to have sturgeon in your fish pond. Sturgeon are a type of fish that can be found in Stardew Valley’s Mountain Lake. To catch a sturgeon, you’ll need to fish in the Mountain Lake during summer or winter. Their peak fishing times are between 6 AM and 7 PM.
Remember, a higher fishing level means a higher chance of catching sturgeon, so make sure to level up your fishing skill if you’re having trouble snagging these elusive fish.
Step 3: Populating Your Fish Pond with Sturgeon
Now that you know how to catch sturgeon, it’s time to add them to your fish pond. Simply approach the pond, select the sturgeon in your inventory, and click on the pond to release them into their new home. Keep in mind that each fish pond can hold up to 10 fish, but you’ll need to complete pond quests to increase your pond’s capacity.
Pond quests will be assigned by your fish from time to time. To complete a quest, simply provide the requested item(s) by tossing them into the pond. Once the quest is complete, your pond’s capacity will increase, allowing you to add more fish.
Step 4: How to Get Caviar from a Sturgeon
You’ve got your fish pond, you’ve got your sturgeon, and you’re ready to get that sweet, sweet caviar. But how do you actually harvest caviar from your sturgeon-filled pond?
The answer is simple: patience. Once your sturgeon have settled into their new home, they’ll occasionally produce a Roe. You’ll see the Roe floating in the pond, and all you have to do is right-click on it to collect it. Easy, right?
Now, before you start munching on that Roe, hold up! Roe is not caviar… yet. To transform Roe into caviar, you’ll need to process it using a Preserves Jar. Simply place the Roe into a Preserves Jar, and in just a few short in-game hours, voilà! You’ll have yourself some luxurious caviar.
The Many Uses of Caviar in Stardew Valley
So, what can you do with all that caviar? Well, for starters, you can sell it! Caviar fetches a high price in the world of Stardew Valley, making it an excellent source of income for your farm. A single jar of caviar can sell for a whopping 500g, and if you have the Artisan profession, that price jumps up to 700g! Not too shabby for a little fish egg, huh?
But wait, there’s more! Caviar isn’t just for lining your pockets with gold; it can also be used as a gift for the residents of Stardew Valley. Some villagers absolutely love caviar, like Kent and Krobus, so giving them caviar as a gift will significantly boost your friendship with them.
Additionally, caviar is used in one of the game’s cooking recipes: the Lucky Lunch. This scrumptious dish requires a Sea Cucumber, a Tortilla, and, of course, Caviar. The Lucky Lunch provides you with a luck boost for a short period, making it an excellent meal choice when you’re about to tackle the Skull Cavern or other luck-dependent activities.
