These calculations assume around 220 catches an hour and 96+ Cooking. At maximum efficiency and concentration, players are able to catch and process up to 260 eels per hour without tick manipulation.

These calculations are based on having level 99 Fishing, 96+ Cooking, and maintaining a moderate level of efficiency. Assuming the same intensity, a player with level 90 Fishing could expect to catch around 180 eels an hour. Given 96 Cooking, a sacred eel is worth 805 on average.

Optionally, players may wield their highest available Rada's blessing for up to 8% chance of catching two eels at once. Similarly, players may opt to use Spirit flakes as they will increase the yield by 50%. Neither item provides additional Fishing experience, however, they will increase both profit and Cooking experience and can be stacked.

While the addition of a Pearl fishing rod does not impact catch rate at maximum efficiency, it frees up an additional inventory slot and may be an option worth considering for players who want to reduce intensity. For players without the Pearl fishing rod, a Dragon harpoon can be equipped for use of its special attack, which temporarily boosts the player's Fishing level by 3. Lastly, pieces of the Angler's outfit may be equipped to gain up to 2.5% additional Fishing experience.

With 99 cooking, a chef's delight can be consumed to temporarily raise your level to 104, for 8 Zulrah's scales per cut on average instead of 7. To use this method, deposit the sacred eels in the deposit chest in Zul-andra after a full inventory and cut them later in a bank. A fish barrel can make this more AFK but it isn't necessary. Once Cooking drains below 104, it needs to be reboosted; Preserve is recommended to lengthen the boost. Using this method raises the average value of a sacred eel to 920, which covers the cost of the chef's delights.
