Salmon Roe

Salmon Roe is an ingredient that can be harvested from jumping salmon in streams (non-jumping and dead salmon do not carry any).


1 guaranteed sample can be found in up to 3 locations.

  • 1 in each kitchen wing (if constructed)


Salmon can be found in almost every flowing body of water. Locations with guaranteed jumping salmon are:

Two unique dead salmon yield roe when harvested. Their location is:

Salmon that swim in shallow water, such as along the coast of the Sea of Ghosts between Dawnstar and Winterhold, can yield salmon roe when killed.

Roe can be harvested after killing salmon with the Unrelenting Force shout. This is especially easy at the fish hatchery.


  • The waterbreathing effect of salmon roe is valued at 15.4 times higher than it is for other alchemical ingredients. Thus, any waterbreathing potion with roe as a component will be extraordinarily valuable.
  • The Fortify Magicka duration is only 5 seconds, while the Waterbreathing effect is 60 seconds. These values appear to have been swapped with one another, as Fortify Magicka is normally 60 seconds, while Waterbreathing is normally 5.
