Resident Evil Village is home to plenty of wild animals, but none is rarer than the Finest Fish. Here’s how you can obtain this elusive creature. 

The Duke is key to Ethan’s survival in Resident Evil Village. This larger-than-life character sells a variety of weapons, upgrades, healing items, and game-changing food items. While you’ll naturally need a lot of Lei to purchase the game’s deadly weaponry, the Duke’s Kitchen is completely free to use. However, in order to use this service, you’ll need to harvest the required ingredients.

  1. Take the Lone Road (west of the Altar)
  2. Turn right and walk down the path until you reach the bridge
  3. Use the Crank to lower the bridge
  4. Enter the boat
  5. Follow the river south
  6. Disembark the boat at the woods
  7. Take the left path
  8. Use your knife or pistol to kill the fish

If done correctly, you should see a small pond with two normal fish and the Finest Fish. As the name suggests, the Finest Fish is much more noteworthy than its normal counterparts. Simply look for the large golden fish and use your knife or pistol to kill it. 

Once you have acquired Finest Fish, head back over to the Altar and hand it over to The Duke.
