Raw karambwan is a fish native to the tropical island of Karamja. Catching one requires 65 Fishing and a karambwan vessel using raw karambwanji as bait after completing the Tai Bwo Wannai Trio quest. Each catch yields 50 Fishing experience. The karambwan fishing spots are north of the Ship Yard and east of the harpie bug swarms at fairy ring code dkp.
Unlike regular Fishing, karambwan may steal karambwanji from the vessel without catch. When this occurs, a filtered game message will state A Karambwan deftly snatches the Karambwanji from your vessel! The rate of occurrence is the inverse of the fishing chance graph below.
To be able to cook a karambwan thoroughly, players must speak to Tinsay in his hut after completing the Tai Bwo Wannai Trio quest. When using a raw karambwan on a fire or cooking range, two options of cooking are given: poorly or thoroughly. Cooking poorly requires 1 Cooking, but yields a poison karambwan and 80 Cooking experience. Cooking thoroughly requires 30 Cooking yielding a cooked karambwan and 190 Cooking experience. Poison karambwan cannot be cooked again to obtain a cooked karambwan. Karambwan stop burning at 99 Cooking, 93 Cooking at the Hosidius Kitchen, or 87 Cooking at the Hosidius Kitchen after completing the elite Kebos Diary.
Catching a karambwan is a medium Karamja Diary task, while Cooking a karambwan thoroughly is a hard Karamja Diary task.
Raw karambwan can be purchased from Tiadeche's Karambwan Stall, which has a fast restock rate. Cooking karambwan by buying them is a popular Cooking method for Ultimate ironman players.

Due to changes of karambwanji, for balancing reasons fishing karambwan now grants 50 experience rather than the previous 105 experience.
- According to Lubufu, Karambwan is translated as "Friend of Karamja" in the Karamjan language.
- The villagers call players "bwana", which means "friend". This would make the word "Karambwan" a combination of the words "Karamja" and "bwana".
