Also, we should talk about the song "Fishing Frenzy", which plays during Known Occurrences.

The chaotic 31/16 time signature gives us a feeling of imminent danger.

The nightmare of Grillers and ferocious Salmonids chasing after you might linger even when you close your eyes.

Fishing Frenzy is a song performed by ω-3.


Fishing Frenzy starts off with a timpani sequence, accompanied by an electronic whine similar to an alarm. The electronic production then builds up, as cellos and more drums are added. Later on, there is a cello solo, which features many fast-paced rhythms and notes. The song plays during Known Occurrences in Salmon Run matches, replacing Deluge Dirge or Frantic Aspic. It can also be heard in Squid Beatz 2 after hearing it in a Salmon Run match, with a maximum score of 140 and 333 in Normal and Hard modes, respectively.

In Salmon Run Next Wave, this song only plays in certain higher-risk events, namely Rush, Fog, The Griller, and Cohock Charge.



Fishing refers to the Grizzco workers harvesting the Salmonids' Golden Eggs, while Frenzy pertains to an emotional state of wild uncontrollable behavior, fittingly describing the state of the Salmonids, and even the Grizzco workers.
