The King of Herrings, or Giant Oarfish, is one of the largest fish caught by conventional means in the game, and can get well over 20 feet. They are the Monster Fish of the Safir Cave area. In reality, they can get even larger, over 40 feet and they are the longest bony fish in the world. actually, it is not a herring at all, but related to the ribbonfish.

The King of Herrings in game has a very inaccurate head. While in reality, oarfish have a jaw that extends outwards and small eyes, in game, it is the exact opposite. The jaw, however, is an easy mistake, as the King of Herring's jaw does look like just its bottom jaw when closed.

If an earthquake strikes near or in Japan, they can be seen washed up on the shore, but this is very rare

Preferably, start looking for this fish after you have caught the White Sturgeon, the Hyneria, and the Electric Eel, as those will give you an idea of how this fish fights.This monster fish can get 23.22 feet long. Beware though, this fish is going to be a lot tougher than any of those fish. An A-rank will escape to roughly 125 ft from a 40 ft cast before you can start reeling it in so never reel from far always cast close to it. Is pretty easy to attract but a Pudgy CuskeelFrilled Shark, or a Coelacanth would probably steal your bait but is mostly easily seen so you may sometimes avoid them. Once you catch one, they somehow appear to be more common. It takes some patience. However, you should motor around to look for it in the cave. Look for a giant ribbon-like fish in the water. It is easily visible.
