Admired for its beauty.

Cave fish are a type vermin fish. They are only found in underground water sources, but they can be seen year-round. They are a ready source of food when cleaned at a fishery.
They appear to simply appear anywhere, even in a sealed reservoir with no means of entry without leaving the water.
