"Qi'ra? You look like a hungry needlegawp, opening and closing your mouth like that."
Han, to Qi'ra[src]

Needlegawps were a species of black-eyed scalefin fish with several varieties, including the silver-colored sleek needlegawp and the green-spotted, yellow-skinned speckled needlegawp. The fish were found in the oceans of the planets Corellia[1] and Ahch-To.[2] On the former, needlegawps were caught and sold in the fishmarkets of Coronet City;[1] on the latter, the Lanai would catch them.[source?] In around 34 ABY,[3] the Lanai Caretakers had one sleek needlegawp and one speckled needlegawp[source?] strung up on a drying rack in the Jedi village on Ahch-To when the Jedi Rey fired a blaster through the wall of the village hut she was staying in.[2]

Behind the scenes[]

Needlegawps first appeared in the 2017 film Star Wars: Episode VIII The Last Jedi.[2] The props were then reused[source?] in the 2018 film Solo: A Star Wars Story[4] and the species was first named in the accompanying reference book Solo: A Star Wars Story The Official Guide, which was written by Pablo Hidalgo.[1]
