Introduction

Fishers are the harvesters of the realm's marine and freshwater animal resources.
The trade rose to prominence in the nation of Limsa Lominsa, owing to the plentiful waters upon and around Vylbrand island. Be it from the shore of a sea, the bank of a river, or the deck of a boat, Eorzea's anglers must constantly account for a wide range of factors to optimize their success, including season, time, place, tools, and bait.

Official Site

Fisher is a Disciple of the Land that harvests fish and other sea creatures from the waters of Eorzea, as well as other locations at higher levels, such as cloud fishing and volcano fishing. The materials they gather are used primarily by Culinarians and Alchemists.
