Aquaculture Mod 1.12.2/1.11.2 is an expansion of Minecraft’s base fishing system. It allows you to catch over 30 new fish with a brand new series of rods and tools. You never know what you’ll catch. Every biome is home to tons of unique fish you can only catch in that biome, and there’s a myriad of new loot items you can randomly catch while fishing.

Aquaculture Mod

This mod aims to enhance the Minecraft fishing experience by adding a host of new fish. The fish available to the player depends upon the current biome and the fishing rod used; as of now, the Iron Fishing Rod is needed to catch all Aquaculture fish, and is the only rod added by the mod.

The key item to this mod is the Iron Fishing Rod. This tool allows you to catch all the new fish and the chance to reel in loot. There are also Gold, Diamond and Neptunium rods that subsequently increase your chances of successful hauls when fishing.

Neptunium is a new ore added to the game that allows you to craft better tools and armor. It seems that the armor and tools are a few points stronger than Diamond so well worth the effort. The Neptunium Rods, however, are reserved for Server Admins or Creative mode builds as they catch something every time the line is cast. You can find Neptunium or full pieces of Neptunium armor in Neptune’s Bounty chests, caught randomly while fishing.

You can even enchant your rods to help you catch more fish with Efficiency; more loot with Magnetic enchants; heavy line enchants for catching items with more weight; plus many more. If you’ve ever wanted a more immersive fishing experience in Minecraft, then this mod is a great push in that direction. It gives you realistic fish while keeping you in the mindset that the type of rod or lure (enchantment) makes a difference in your catch.
