More than any other fish the Striped Marlin in Tap Tap Fish: Abyssrium has driven fans (and by extension, me) insane. So I decided hey, just make a single, extremely direct post to gather all the information into one place. If you’re looking for info on Hidden Fish in general, or any other game info, see my complete AbyssRium Guide.
The biggest thing to remember about the Striped Marlin is that it is simply extremely rare and has a very long time between possible chances. There really aren’t many relevant tricks and there’s no secret to it. This page mostly serves to debunk various myths and reassure the correct method, but I have every single bit of relevant info I’ve found no matter how small.
Scouring dozens of comments and posts, this is what I’ve come up with. If you have a tip to share or a rumor to debunk please feel free to comment below, email me, or contact me however you feel most comfortable.
You can support me and my guides monthly on Patreon (and even score some rewards like cute cat pictures)! The more I earn the more time I can spend on improving guides like this.
2017-07-10: Added info that the Marlins can occasionally spawn entirely out of sight, so looking up with the Camera can help.
2-17-06-20: Added possible info about Star Horn Coral being required, which is neither confirmed nor proven false.
2017-06-02: App update was just released stating the Striped Marlin earning rate was increased! Also, even before the update people seem to have been getting them much more often. Hopefully their rarity is reduced. It’s now unknown if the prior “guide” AbyssRium posted is the new actual unlock condition or still false.
2017-06-01: AbyssRium posted a “Guide” on facebook for getting the Marlin. The information contained within is 100% false.
