|This article is about the Hoopfish. You may be looking for the Spinefish.|
The Hoopfish is fairly easy to catch, as it doesn't retreat upon being approached by the player, and is easily recognized due to its bright bioluminescent glows.
Cooked Hoopfish have moderate food properties.
The Hoopfish has a slim build, featuring a dark violet colored body that gradually transitions into blue towards the head, which has a bright neon green color. It has two green eyes, a small dorsal fin and a purple caudal fin that wraps around its end.
The Hoopfish's most distinct feature is the bright green bioluminescent antennae extending from the top and bottom of its head and bends around its tail forming a hoop.

Small, school-mentality prey fish with a unique method of propulsion.
- There is a subspecies of the Hoopfish called the Spinefish that dwells exclusively in the Blood Kelp Zone and in the Lost River.
- The Data Bank Entry for the Hoopfish states that it changes the compisition of the water infront of it to propel itself through the water. In spite of this the Hoopfish ingame still pumps it's tail like a normal fish when it moves.
