 This mods aims to expand a bit the ocean fauna, adding seven new water creatures and a new biome, along with some other blocks and items.



The new mobs:


An anglerfish


The Anglerfish: It spawns quite often in deep oceans and is aggressive towards other fishes. Its meat can be used to get a new light source.



An coelacanth


The Coelacanth: It spawns very rarely and only when it's raining. It can sell for a lot of emeralds.



A giant isopod


The Isopod: A water arthropod that only spawns in the new biome. Its meat can be cooked or used in a new brewing recipe.




A horseshoe crab


The Horseshoe Crab: Another water arthropod that spawns in beaches near the water. It drops its thorax, which can be used in another new brewing recipe.



A giant spider crabA baby spider crab

The Giant Spider Crab: These passive crustaceans will spawn in warm and lukewarm oceans. They'll roam the seafloor and can dig up stuff from the sand if they're underwater. The stuff they dig up depends of the type of sand below them (more info here). They can breed if you feed them almost any meat, dropping crab eggs which you can use to spawn baby spider crabs. They drop crab legs which you can eat raw or cooked.


Ghost shark variants


The Ghost Shark: A deep sea fish that comes in 4 different variants. They're venomous but passive creatures, and their meat can be used to get their stings, which are consumables that give a long posion effect to other mobs.


A mudskipper


The Mudskipper: These are small but aggresive creatures that wander the swamps near water. You can sometimes find them jumping and fighting each other. They'll watch out for anyone that gets near them and will attack them if they get too close. However they retreat when they have low health. They drop their meat when dead but they also have a chance to drop one of their fins when hurt.


The new biome:
