Aquarium Pack[edit]

The Aquarium Pack introduces the fishing mechanic and the fishing rod tool, as well as many water creatures and a handful of items and blocks. Upon obtaining the Fishing rod, some npcs will fish and put their catches in chests.

This DLC also includes the “Open Oceans” song and it’s recipe, and adds the recipes for the following food: Squid-on-a-Stick, Fresh fish feast, Grilled beakfish, Pan-fried marlin, Anglerfish stew, and Smoked Salmon.

An additional status effect was introduced with the Aquarium pack: "Swim Speed Up", which allows builders to move underwater like they do in land for a short time.

This is the only DLC to add a brand new location to the game: Angler's Isle. Gillian and Finn live in this island, and they provide quests for the Builder that serve as a tutorial for fishing. After finishing their storylines, they can be moved to the Isle of Awakening or to Buildertopias.

After doing some of Gillian's quest, the Gurgling Lagoon (Explorer's Shore) can be visited. In there, many types of marine decorations can be found, such as Anemones, Pillar Corals or Seagrass. Some fishes can only be caught in this island.

Some fishes that were previously obtainable as monster drops like the Salmon can now be fished too.
