  • Sunfish will never sell for more than Gold.png67g under any circumstances, making it more profitable to turn them into Sashimi worth Gold.png75g before selling them.
  • It is possible to catch sunfish in other locations, not just the river, if it is the first fish caught after receiving the Bamboo Pole from Willy.
