Jewelfish were a tiny, silvery fish found in the oceans and rivers of Faerûn.[1]


Jewelfish were inedible by humanoids.[1] They were susceptible to changes in weather; if it became too warm, they would die in large groups.[2]


It was once fashionable to dye jewelfish various colors. The practice died out, but details of it could be found in old books in Waterdeep, Neverwinter, Memnon, and Esmeltaran.[2]
