A fish in Fortnite is a type of consumable material that can be used to replenish health or gain a shield. There are 8 categories of fish, including jellyfish, slurp fish, and shield fish. These 3 shield-type fish are included in one of the challenges of Week 3 of Season 4, Chapter 3, in which players must replenish their shield by eating a fish. In this guide, we will tell you how to gain shields from Jellyfish, Shield Fish, or Slurpfish.
Finding and Using Jellyfish, Shield fish, and Slurpfish in Fortnite
All three types of fish are rare or epic. Shield fish are the only type that gives a shield, while the other 2 can also restore health. Different varieties of each type of fish can be obtained by using different methods and by catching fish in different places, such as a desert or swamp.
Shield Fish in Fortnite
The shield fish is the only one of these 3 fish species that provide a shield boost. Players gain 50 shield points when a shield fish is consumed, and 2 shield fishes work as a large shield potion. Shield fishes are rare and can be found in fishing holes or calm waters.
Foremost you must find a fishing rod or harpoon gun and then head to the edge of the map or to a large body of water, such as a lake or creek. The fishing rod will never break in Fortnite, but the harpoon gun has a limited number of shots. However, it is a faster fishing tool, and it is recommended to be used if possible.

After getting a fishing rod or harpoon gun, go to any water body and find fishing holes marked with bubbles and ripples on the surface and start fishing.
To conclude, it may take a few tries, but you are sure to find shield fish. Although they sound similar, Slurp fish and Jellyfish are not considered shield fish, and using them does not solve the need for shield enhancement. Good luck!
