As the weeks pass, the release of 1.13, dubbed the Aquatic Update, continues to grow closer and Mojang as always are giving players a early access look into the new update prior to release.

This week's snapshot, 18w08b, includes new exciting features, providing a taste of what's to come.

  • Fish
Currently, Mojang has announced 3 types of fish. These include cod, salmon and puffer fish.
The mobs also feature similar preferences and personality to their real-world counter parts. Cod will spawn in moderate oceans while Salmon will spawn in frozen/cold oceans and rivers and the Puffer fish will spawn in lukewarm/warm oceans.

As previously announced at Minecon Earth (2017), fish mobs will indeed be able to be caught in buckets of water. Prepare those fish bowls! And yes, as quoted by Mojang, "Fish need water to live". Fun fact.

  • Ocean and Features
The ocean is now more than a vast expanse of water with different sea levels. Minecraft's ocean now consists of 5 temperatures. Frozen, cold, normal, lukewarm and warm.

Other new terrain features to look out for include underwater caves and ravines. Some ravines will even expose lava at the bottom of deeply cut ones.

Other Features

  • Respiration & Water Breathing will no longer directly change your visibility underwater
  • You can see better the longer you stay underwater
  • If you go back out of water, you'll quickly lose your water vision.
  • Removed water visibility part of the Water Breathing potion & Respiration enchantment
  • Added recipes to turn dried kelp into storage blocks and back again
