Studium Deliveries are a great source of EXP for crafters and gatherers in FFXIV: Endwalker, but some of the quest items can be hard to find. T’laqa Tia will send you all over the place for fish, but if you’re not paying attention, you’ll miss where to find them. Our FF14 guide will map out where to find each Studium Delivery fish and show you which bait to use.

You can unlock Studium Deliveries after the “Sound the Bell, School’s In” main scenario quest.


Where to buy Endwalker bait

You can grab any bait from Synnove, the material supplier, in Old Sharlayan. She sells Shrimp Balls, Gold Salmon Roe, and Leeches. We’ve mapped out her location below, but you can get bait from most of the general vendors in Endwalker zones.

Studium Delivery angling tips

If you’re this far, this means you already know the basics on how to fish, but allow us to give some tips to grab these fish quickly. You’ll need six of them for each quest, which can be annoying if you’re unlucky.

  1. Turn on Collect. These fish need to be caught as Collectables and can’t even be desynthed, so remember to do this.
  2. Cast your line in the correct fishing hole with the current bait (provided below).
  3. Reel in the fish.
  4. If the fish is what you’re looking for, use “Identical Cast” to bring in another one.
  5. If you’re level 81+ and you’re having trouble meeting the required Collectability, use “Prize Catch.”
  6. Cast your line back out.

This should allow you to catch the required quest fish fairly quickly. You can use Patience with Precision and Powerful Hookset to rack in EXP while you fish, but having GP for Identical Cast is more important, in our experience.


Level 80 Fisher Studium Delivery: Giant Aetherlouse location

You can find Giant Aetherlouse in Labyrinthos, to the west of the lift up to Old Sharlayan. It needs Gold Salmon Roe as bait. The fishing hole is called “Unmoved Source Alpha.” We’ve mapped out where we’ve found it below.

Level 83 Fisher Studium Delivery: Garjana Wrasse location

You can find Garjana Wrasse in Thavnair, around the Aetheryte in The Great Work. Just fish in the water near here and you’ll find it using Shrimp Ball bait. The fishing hole is called “The Great Runoff” We’ve mapped out the location below.

Level 85 Fisher Studium quest: Alnairan Salmon location

Though not a delivery, you’ll need to give T’laqa Tia an Alnairan Salmon for a quest, “The Wandering Whale,” before you can move on with more deliveries. You can find it in the river below Palaka’s Stand in Thavnair using Gold Salmon Roe bait. We’ve marked the location below.

Level 88 Fisher Studium Delivery: Smaragdos location

You can find Smaragdos in Elpis, specifically in the large body of water to the northeast of Anagnorisis. You can fish up Smaragdos with Leech bait, but we had more luck using Sky Spoon Lure, a special bait you can get from Scrip Exchange NPCs for 50 White Gathering Scrips. The fishing pool is called “Lethe.” We’ve mapped out the spot below.

Level 90 Fisher Studium quest: Lunar Lamenter locations

Again, this quest isn’t a delivery, but it will send you off to Mare Lamentorum to find a Lunar Lamenter. You can find the fish in a cave to the northeast of Sinus Lacrimarum using Grey Worm bait. The Lopporit merchant inside Bestways Burrow sells the bait. The pool that the Lunar Lamenters are in is called “The Frozen Fissure.” We’ve labeled it on a map below.
