Giant carp are a type of fish that can be obtained by cooking a raw giant carp on a fire or cooking range. Cooking giant carp gives no cooking experience. Players may burn a giant carp while cooking one, resulting in a burnt fish; the burn rate while cooking these will decrease as players reach higher Cooking levels.
Eating a giant carp heals 6 Hitpoints. They can only be caught as part of the Fishing Contest quest. Level 10 Fishing is required, along with a fishing rod and red vine worms for bait — the latter can be dug up in McGrubor's Wood with a spade.
Players can obtain multiple giant carps by fishing for them, and then dropping them and picking them back up (see drop trick). Once the quest has been completed, this fish can no longer be obtained.
