How To Breed Fish In Minecraft

You may have heard of Minecraft, the game that has taken over classrooms and homes worldwide. You can play in creative mode or survival mode, but there are other ways to enjoy it. Breeding animals in Minecraft isn’t as easy as you might think. 

It requires strategic thinking and patience to breed two different types of pets together until they create an animal baby. Once you’ve learned how to breed animals in Minecraft, you’ll never go back to just catching them again.

Can You Breed Fish In Minecraft?

In Minecraft, you cannot breed fish. Fish spawn in the water automatically and cannot be bred in the game. In Minecraft, there are no baby fish. Fish, on the other hand, spawn in ocean biomes. Although it is not possible to spawn fish in survival mode, you can do so in creative mode.

How To Breed Fish In Minecraft

Breeding fish in Minecraft is possible but not easy as there are no natural spawning grounds for them to live on land and underwater. Fish mobs spawn naturally deep under the ocean surface, making it hard to get them close together. 

There are three different ways to breed fish in Minecraft: manually summoning, using phantom spawners, and using a command block with creative mode. The last option is the easiest but has the highest chance of failure because you only get one shot before your target swims away.

There are several ways of doing this, but they all rely on manipulating where, when, and how often certain types of sea life spawn. The simplest involves creating a large body of water and using the /summon command to spawn entities in carefully chosen locations manually.

This is quite easy, but it takes time and persistence because you’ll only ever get one fish at a time, which can swim away before you even see what kind it is. It also works best with squid as they’re the easiest to spot.

You can speed things up a little by using phantom spawners, which are entities that spawn mobs even when there aren’t any around for miles. They only work underwater, though, and you need at least three of them set up in exactly the right locations. You also have very little control over what spawns and when.

The final option is to use a command block in creative mode (which can be activated by typing /game mode 0 into the chat bar). This will instantly spawn any mob or item you want with no limits on where it appears. Still, two problems occur: firstly, they won’t appear underwater where you need them, and secondly, they’ll only appear once, which means that unless your timing is perfect, the fish or squid will swim away before you can tame it.

Understanding Minecraft

Minecraft is a sandbox video game that allows the player to build constructions out of textured cubes in a three-dimensional world. Reviewers have described the gameplay mode known as survival as a cross between the strategic elements of Minecraft and first-person action games like Quake. 

In this mode, players have health that can be exhausted through combat and other activities. Players also have a hunger bar that must be periodically refilled through food consumption, and if it is depleted, that player will not regenerate health naturally.

The player can move freely throughout the world and rotate their view by using the keyboard or mouse. The game’s open-ended gameplay has been described as allowing players to create their own goals while also being dynamic enough that no two players will have identical experiences.

Breeding In Minecraft

Minecraft’s breeding feature is a crucial component of the game. The breeding of animals is a very useful feature because it allows the player to grow crops and more quickly breed them.

For this process to work successfully, you have to ensure that both parents are “compatible” with each other, usually by matching up their species. For example, sheep can be bred with pigs but not with cows. Chickens can be bred with pigs but not sheep.

Another important thing about breeding is that both parents also have to “like” each other – hearts above their heads measure this. The more compatible they are, the higher chance there will be for them to breed successfully. However, animals who do not like each other too much will not breed at all.

Once you have a pair of animals, just feed some food to them, and they’ll start making babies. You can then pick up the baby animal with your hand or mine it from underneath; this is also how you take eggs out of an animal that has laid one. To place an animal down, drop it from your hand by holding Q.

Every Breedable Animal In Minecraft And How To Breed Them 

The breeding method is the same for most animals, although the food supply varies. However, certain circumstances are required in the case of some species, such as pandas.

  • Bees: Bees are easy to breed because they diligently follow players who have flowers. They will breed if you right-click on them while holding flowers in your hand.
  • Pandas are a rare mob that you will only find in the bamboo jungle environment. To procreate, at least eight bamboos must be placed within five blocks of two pandas. Players must feed them bamboos after this criterion has been met.
  • Foxes are typically seen in taiga biomes in Minecraft. Fortunately, there are plenty of tasty berries growing there, so all the player has to breed them.
  • Cats: Cats must first be tamed before they may be bred. Raw cod or salmon can be fed to both of them to breed them.
  • Ocelots: Prior to breeding, ocelots must have faith in the player. They can be bred with any type of raw fish, such as raw cod or raw salmon. You cannot use cooked fish to breed them.
  • Turtles: These are unique animals that you will only find on the beach. To get them to breed, players must feed them seagrass. Llamas: Similar to some of the other animals, llamas must be tamed before being bred in Minecraft. All the player has to do now is feed them haybales once they’ve been tamed.
  • Wolf: Wolves are widely tamed by players since they make excellent pets. After taming them, players must give meat to two fully healthy wolves to breed them. They’ll eat just about any kind of meat, including raw or cooked rabbit, rotten flesh, raw or cooked pork chops, raw or cooked chicken, raw or cooked steak, and raw or cooked mutton. 
  • Cows and mooshrooms: These both reproduce when the player feeds them wheat. Breeding them is advantageous because players may obtain raw beef. Breeding them is highly beneficial as players can get raw beef and leather from them.
  • Llamas: Like some other animals, you must tame llamas before you can breed them in Minecraft. What the player has to do now is feed them haybales once they’ve been tamed.
  • Rabbits are a rare passive mob that can be found above grassland, sand, and snow. It’s difficult to breed them since they constantly hop around. Dandelions, carrots, as well as golden carrots, can be used to breed them.
  • Hoglins seem to be the only hostile mobs that a player in Minecraft may breed. They may be produced with crimson fungus and spawn in the Nether’s crimson forest biome.
  • Sheep: White sheep are plentiful, and once killed, they drop mutton and wool. They must be fed wheat, much like cows, to breed.
  • Pigs and chickens: Whenever killed, pigs release porkchop, one of the finest food items in Minecraft. They can be bred by feeding potatoes, carrots, or beetroots. Wheat, pumpkin, melon, and beetroot seeds can be used to breed chickens.
  • Axolotls are among Minecraft’s latest mobs, having been introduced in the 1.17 Caves & Cliffs update. Whenever the player feeds them tropical fish, they will reproduce.
  • Goats: In addition to axolotls, goats were added in the 1.17 release. They are located in the highlands and are neutral. In Minecraft, players must feed them wheat to breed them.
  • Horses and donkeys are two animals in the game that are very similar. You must serve golden apples, golden carrots, or enchanted golden apples to both these animals to breed. Horses, on the other hand, must first be tamed.
  • Striders: The sole passive mob that may be tamed in the Nether is the Strider. Whenever a player feeds them twisted fungus, two of them will breed.


The fun thing about breeding fish in Minecraft is that you can do it all independently and without the need for any mods. The best way to breed fish in Minecraft is by spawning them using a water bucket. You can also find baby fish that are spawned naturally, but it will be more difficult.

We hope this blog post has made you more informed about fish breeding. If not, just remember that the best way to learn is through experience and experimentation. So go on out there and try something new.
