The Scorpion Carp is a fish that can be caught in the pond at The Desert during all seasons. It can also randomly be found in Garbage Cans after unlocking The Desert or at the Traveling Cart for Gold.png450-1,000g. The only other fish that can be caught in the Desert is the Sandfish.

Since it is more valuable than the Sandfish, it is more difficult to catch and also has a lower bite rate. Catching the Scorpion Carp requires fishing level 4, either naturally or by using fishing Buffs. Other than Legendary Fish, the Scorpion Carp is the only fish where a certain fishing level must be met to hook it.

If the fishing level condition is satisfied, each cast results in a 12-20% chance to hook a Scorpion Carp, with higher chances at higher fishing levels.
