White Algae is an item which can be caught with a Fishing Pole during all seasons at any underground location (the Mines, the Sewers, the Mutant Bug Lair, or the Witch's Swamp).

White Algae can also be dropped by several Monsters: Grubs, Mutant Grubs, Flies, Mutant Flies, Bugs, and Red, Purple, Copper, and Iron Slimes. A Ghostfish Fish Pond may produce 5 White Algae when the population of the pond reaches 9.

White Algae is displayed in the Fish section of the collection tab, and counts towards the four fishing Achievements.[1] However, it is otherwise not considered to be a fish, and therefore cannot be sold to Willy at the Fish Shop.
