There are three primary types of fish filet in New World. Whenever you break down a fish you just caught, you can get ordinary fish fillets when you salvage fish in your inventory. The basic Tier 1 version is useful for many different recipes. Once you’ve caught a fish, hold S on it in the inventory to break it down. Here’s a quick rundown of the ingredients you can get beyond Tier 1. You can get a few different things, although drop chances are better for some of the lower-level items.
How to Get Firm Fish Filets
Firm Fish Filet are the Tier 2 fish drop, like the others, they come from salvaging fish in New World. You will get plenty of these as long as you are regularly salvaging fish on your fishing trips. They are used in various ration recipes at a Tier 2 Cooking Station.
For most of these basic fish, you want to use Firefly or Woodlouse Bait on your fishing pole
Firm Fish Filets come from Catfish, Cod, Halibut, Sturgeon, Common Fish, and Uncommon Fish.
How to Get Tender Fish Filets
Tender Fish Filets are the rarest of the three, and require a decent pole and bait to get. The Uncommon rarity fish have a chance to drop tender filets, as well as firm ones, but the odds of the Tender version seem to be lower. These tier 3 ingredients are some of the best for cooking in the game, and are used for tier 3 cooking station recipes.
Tender Fish Filets might come from Paddlefish, Speartooth Shark, or Swordfish.
Where to get Fish Roe
Fish Roe is one of the more expensive ingredients you get from salvaging fish. You’ll also want to loot Woodlouse Bait or Firefly Bait to increase your chances of finding higher-quality fish.

You can, of course, buy any variety of the three fish filets and other items via the trade house. This assumes that another player has placed some for sale. Eventually, the prices will stabilize, but right now pricing is all over the place for basic materials. Players who put the time into leveling and finding resources can make bank, though.
