A medium-sized fish found around coasts and islands. It is easy prey for predators.

Milkfish are very common, small (about 10 kilo) tropical fish. Although they appear harmless, they greatly enjoy luring dwarves to a watery death via drowning, and produce little food when butchered. Unlike many other aquatic animals they produce bones but no skin.

Despite their name, milkfish can not be milked.
