Catching Giant Mantis Shrimp
Commentary:The most efficient way to catch large volumes of Giant Mantis Shrimp is to wait for it to be Fish of the Day at Gokk'lok Shallows (Tangled Mantis Shrimp Cluster and Large Tangled Mantis Shrimp Cluster). Without an active Fish of the Day migration, the fastest method of catching Giant Mantis Shrimp is to travel round the coast of Pandaria fishing Giant Mantis Shrimp Swarm. Krasarang Wilds and The Jade Forest have the greatest number of these pools, although all zones with a lengthy coastline contain plenty of Giant Mantis Shrimp Swarms, except Townlong Steppes, which has very few.
Achievements:Pandarian Angler: Catch each type of fish native to Pandaria: Emperor Salmon, Flying Tiger Gourami, Giant Mantis Shrimp, Golden Carp, Jade Lungfish, Jewel Danio, Krasarang Paddlefish, Mimic Octopus, Redbelly Mandarin, Reef Octopus, Spinefish Alpha and Tiger Gourami.
