A pelagic fish, living in salty waters. — In-game description

The Mackerel is an animal in DayZ Standalone, living in the ocean that forms the coast of Chernarus. It can be caught using a Fish Net Trap.

Much like the Carp and Sardines, this fish can be caught and used directly as source of food. This is not recommended however, as consuming raw meat will make you sick.

Harvesting[edit | edit source]

Before the Mackerel can be cooked, it needs to be sliced into Mackerel Fillets using a knife. You'll get 1 Mackerel Fillet that can be baked over a fire or boiled in water, as well as a Small Pile of Guts.
