What to Do with Infected Fish in DREDGE

How it Happens

Infection can set in if your ship is attacked by an underwater enemy, which is more likely to happen after your panic gauge has filled completely. You will see a message on screen bout something slithering into your cargo hold. If you check your cargo hold after this you should notice a fish looking quite discolored and it will have the status of infected.

What to do with infected Fish

There is no salvaging an infected catch, in fact, if left for too long the infection can spread to other fish on your ship. The best thing to do is to sell the infected species immediately despite the reduced value it carries.

There’s no way around this issue and really the only way to combat it is precautions like storing or selling high value fish as soon as possible to reduce the chances of infection.
