This article is about an older version of DF.

A captured live fish is caught using the "capture live fish" command given at a fishery. A dwarf with the fishing labor will then attempt to catch a fish live using an available animal trap. The fish will then be placed into an available aquarium. Unlike normal fishing, which will be done at any suitable location, the "capture live fish" command will only capture fish from an explicitly designated fishing zone - if no such zones are defined, the dwarf will simply pick up the animal trap and stand still.

Captured turtles and moghoppers can then be used as pets. However, a captured moghopper is also used to make five units of mog juice using the fishery's "extract from live fish" command as well as being a pet candidate. This extract can now be used for cooking and trading.

Note: A constructed trap can not be used unless it is deconstructed. (q->x).
