- "The meat of the slaughterfish is meally and noisome, but dried slaughterfish scales are said by locals to be 'a crunchy treat' when prepared in the native manner. Foreigners are advised to beware of slaughterfish scales."
Scales are found by killing slaughterfish, both regular and small. Regular slaughterfish may have up to two portions, while small slaughterfish may have only one if any.
Scales are one of only two ingredients in vanilla Morrowind which can be used to create Restore Endurance potions, the other ingredient being Gravedust. The Tribunal expansion adds two other ingredients with a Restore Endurance effect.
