How to Get Water in Subnautica: Below Zero?


There are two sources to get water in Subnautica: Below Zero which is Fish and Water Filtration Machine.

Source 1: Fish

Bladder Fish water stat


Fish is a simple way to get some H2O in your system in Subnautica: Below Zero. Go out in the water and catch the fish. Return to the base and head on to your ‘Fabricator’. Under the ‘Sustenance’ option, select the option ‘Cooked Food’. Here you will get the options to cook whatever fish you have caught. Cook and consume them which will increase your water count. Alternatively, you can put fishes with high water stats directly into the ‘Water’ option under this same Sustenance option and craft it.

The stats differ from fish to fish. According to us, the Bladder fish is good for water stats. Keep in mind that the food deteriorates so consume it as soon as you can. If it is not consumed on time, it will give the player negative stats which will worsen the situation.

Another thing that will affect your water levels is cured fish. Any fish cooked with salt deposits may increase your health much more than regular cooked fish but will have a negative impact on the H2O levels due to the salt content.
