Fish oil is used for various crafting recipes in Warframe, and you’ll need a lot to invest in Zaws or Amps, so here’s how to get plenty.

How and Where to Get Fish Oil in Warframe
Fish oil is an ingredient for many Foundry blueprints including a part of the Grendel Warframe, and a large number of Amp and Zaw parts. As such, you’ll likely need quite a lot of this over time, so let’s go into how you can get some.
As you’ve likely guessed from the name of the item, Fish oil comes from Fish. So to get Fish oil, you’ll need to do some fishing as step one. What Fish specifically won’t matter too much, as Fish Oil is a generic reward from all fish in the area.
Head out into the Plains of Eidolon with your fishing spear and find some unfortunate creature to throw pointy things at. You can find fish in virtually any significant body of water in the area, though some are better than others. Sticking to lakes and coastlines tends to result in having more fish spawning to catch, which ultimately makes the process quicker.
Some fish will only spawn under certain conditions, such as specific times of day (or night.) Some of them will only appear when making use of specific baits, and others appear at all times. If you’re going to be fishing for a while, make sure to take advantage of the various boost items and baits available, particularly the fish-highlight dye to simplify the process.
You don’t need to catch anything specifically for Fish Oil. With that said, different fish do have different materials when cut up. That means that catching a variety of them now can mean less grinding for other resources when you need them later.
How to Process Caught Fish
To turn your batch of caught fish into Fish oil, you’ll need to head over to Fisher Hai Luk. She’s one of the closest NPCs to the entrance point of Cetus if you arrive by ship from the star chart map. She’s also marked with a fish on the minimap, making locating her relatively straightforward.
Approach and speak to Hai-Luk when you have fish to spare. Be aware that the next step will destroy your caught fish, so if you’re hoping to keep some of them for your fish tank on the Orbiter or use them for Cetus reputation, you might want to do that first to make sure you don’t destroy them with this menu.
When ready, click on the “Cut Fish” button.
This will take which take you to a menu displaying all of your caught and unused Plains of Eidolon fish. Be aware that fish from other open worlds do not show up here. You’ll need to use the different hub fishing NPCs to process those into their respective products. Be aware that doing so likely won’t give you any fish oil anyway. This is because Fish Oil is Plains of Eidolon specific.
Select what fish you are happy to commit to the cutting process. When ready with enough fish selected, click on the Cut Fish option.
Following that, you’ll end up on the filleting results screen next.
Relevant information about the materials gained from using the selected fish will then display here. If you’re set on using the selected fish, hitting confirm here will finalise the process. Hitting cancel will take you back and let you change the selected fish if you need to do so.
How to Get Fish Oil Faster
The precise rewards from this will vary based on what types of fish you chose to cut up. With that said, fish oil is a universal product of Plains of Eidolon fish. You’ll get it regardless of what fish you use here. The size of the fish will influence how much of each drop you get from the process, however, which can increase the amount of Fish oil you find. This means that cutting up just about any of the fish here should net you at least some Fish oil. Still, bigger is probably better, and therefore likely to be faster.
