This fish species is extremely rare, solitary and only found on the high seas. The body of this fish is strangely disc-shaped, with a diameter of up to two steps, and the fins are round. Its scales are light blue in colour, but almost transparent.
This subtly coloured fish would probably never be spotted in the vast ocean if it did not emit a soft glow at night. Sharp-eyed fishermen recognise the fish swimming close to the surface and catch it. As the Silver Moonfish is both slow and peaceful, the latter is not a problem.
The Silver Moonfish's desirability stems from the fact that its flesh never decays. Furthermore, it stops the decomposition of any other flesh, provided it remains in contact with it. A fresh corpse wrapped in the flesh of the silver moonfish can thus remain unchanged for several months. Even any scavengers will stay away from silver moonfish and anything in contact with it. There is also a rumour among potion brewers that silvermoonfish dampens the ageing process of its eater. However, it is repeatedly found that the state of health deteriorates rapidly after eating the fish. This is one reason why teachers of the mage guilds are eager to combat this superstition.
