A fish was an animal found in Lyra's world. The island of Novy Odense had a fish-pickling factory in the town and fish oil was one of its industrial products. At a bar in the town, Lee Scoresby ordered some vodka and pickled fish from the bartender. He also ate pickled fish for breakfast at a boarding house on the island. Salmon was a type of fish.[1]

The alethiometer told Hannah Relf that the acorn had gone somewhere to do with a fish. She listed down lots of fish species before realising it was at The Trout Inn.[2]

Tony Makarios, after becoming a victim of intercision, held onto a fish he found in a fish-house in an Arctic village as a substitute for his dæmon.[3]
