There’s no new quests to unlock the new Ocean Fishing routes. Just make sure you’ve already unlocked the Fisher job by picking up the quest called “Way of the Fisher” on Limsa Lominsa’s Lower Decks (X: 7, Y: 14). Then, head to Dryskthota on at X: 3, Y: 12 on the docks to register for Ocean Fishing.

What separates the new Ocean Fishing routes from the old is the Route name. The old Route was called the Indigo Route and had you fish in familiar locations like the Rhotano Sea, Rothlyt Sound, and more.

The new Route is called the Ruby Route. You’ll need to make sure you register for the Ruby Route when you register for the fishing expedition. This will give you access to the new locations, the Ruby Price and the One River. If you look on a map, it’s a huge journey, so get ready for your incredible fishing trip!
