When I start fish, it prints:
Welcome to fish, the friendly interactive shell Type `help` for instructions on how to use fish
And then the prompt.
I've actually used fish for a while so I don't need this welcome message. How can I disable it?

Change the value of the variable fish_greeting or create a fish_greeting function. For example, to remove the greeting use:
set -U fish_greeting
Or if you prefer not to use a universal variable, use:
set -g fish_greeting
in config.fish (this is what worked on my system).
this has already been answered here but tldr youll want to use the command
set -U fish_greeting ""
you can customise the welcome prompt too by typing what you want in the double quotes e.g
set -U fish_greeting "🐟"
