Unlocking the quest by speaking with the Mayor

When you begin playing Dredge, the quest will unlock automatically. The Mayor of Greater Marrow will introduce you to the world of Dredge and ask you to catch fish to pay off a debt. Selling the fish you catch will allow you to earn the money you need.

For more information on how to pay off your debt quickly, visit the How to pay off the debt? page.

Catching your first fish

To undock, click the only available icon on the city screen or use the Z (PC), Circle (PS), or B (Xbox) buttons. Swim towards the open water and you will find the first Blue Macrel fishery. Play the mini-game until you catch all five fish. Detailed instructions on how to play the mini-game can be found on the How to fish? page.

You can continue fishing at another location nearby, but it is not necessary at this point. Return to the Mayor in Greater Marrow to remind him of your $50 debt.

Selling your fish

To pay off your debt, you must sell the fish you caught. New locations will appear on the city screen, so visit the Fishmonger and speak with him. Once you\’ve exhausted the dialogue options, a trading window will appear. Sell all of your fish by holding down the F key (PC), square button (PS), or X button (Xbox).

The Mayor will appear and reward you with Research Parts. These parts are necessary for conducting research on new equipment.

Talking with the Shipwright

A new option will appear on the city screen. Click on the Shipwright and speak with the mechanic. You can now purchase new equipment and repair your ship, completing the quest.


What is a dredge and why is it used?

A dredge is a machine that is used to remove sediment, debris, or other materials from the bottom of a body of water. Dredging is often used to deepen or maintain waterways for commercial or recreational purposes, such as improving navigation for boats or creating more space for fish to spawn. Dredging can also be used to remove harmful materials, such as pollutants, from the bottom of a body of water. Dredging can be done using several different methods, including hydraulic dredging, mechanical dredging, and suction dredging. The method used depends on the type of material being removed and the location of the dredging project.

What are the benefits of dredging?

Dredging can have several benefits for both commercial and recreational purposes. By deepening or widening waterways, dredging can improve navigation for boats and increase access to ports and harbors. Dredging can also create more space for fish to spawn and improve water quality by removing sediment and pollutants from the bottom of a body of water. Additionally, dredging can be used to create new land by depositing dredged material in a designated area. This can create new habitats for wildlife and provide opportunities for development. However, it is important to consider the potential environmental impacts of dredging, such as disrupting habitats and releasing pollutants into the water. Proper planning and management is crucial to ensure that dredging projects are carried out in a sustainable and responsible manner.
