"This large fish lives near the shoreline. Its sizable body can store a lot of nutriments. When cooked into a dish, it will temporarily increase your maximum hearts."
Hyrule Compendium

Hearty Bass are items from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. They are curative items that restore Link's health by refilling two Heart Containers. Link can cook with them on an open flame or a very hot surface to make Roasted Hearty Bass which restore three heart containers, or prepare Frozen Hearty Bass in cold conditions which restore two heart containers. He can throw a Hearty Bass into a cooking pot to prepare dishes granted with a "Hearty" effect which grants full recovery and temporarily adds extra yellow hearts. It can also be cooked with "Hearty" small animals such as Hearty Lizard and Monster parts to create a Hearty Elixir. It can be used in upgrading the Zora Helm, Armor and Greaves set via Great Fairies.

They can be found primarily in the waters of West Necluda and Akkala Highlands, though also appear in a small pond near a campsite with a cooking pot on Firly Plateau in East Necluda and a pond located on Mount Rhoam in the Hyrule Ridge region. They can also be found in the Lanayru Great Spring region. Additionally Octoroks may randomly drop Hearty Bass when killed.
