Feeding a large population could be challenging, especially when there is a lack of arable land, wild game is nearing exctinction and ancestors ate all the poultry and livestock long ago. Despair not, though, for there remains a sizeable source of food to tap - seas and rivers, whose unsuspecting inhabitants are in for a big surprise.
Remember to check the Guide to Cooking once you come home loaded with seafood.
Alternately, you can build a fishing cage in water for a more passive approach.
If you have fished out a tile completely and there is no more fish, come back later - clueless creatures should appear at the same spot.
Ways of parting fish and the like with their element.
|Sharpened stick||The least effective way to catch fish. See here to learn the art of making a sharpened stick.|
|Fishing pole||Made with 3 wood. You have a better chance of catching something with this than with a stick.|
|Fishing net||Made with 4 rope. About as good as the pole.|
|Fishing rod||Made with 5 iron. A modern fishing contraption. Only blast fishing would be better than this.|
|Fishing cage||Made with 12 wood. Placed in water tiles (except swamp water) to lure in a clueless organism, who may not fall for it. The catch depends on the location. Placing a cage in deep saltwater may yield octopuses, lobsters and cod. Placing it in shallow water may yield generic fish or salmon.
Wait at least 30 minutes before checking a cage. A floating buoy will signal if there is something in the cage.
All those aquatic edibles.
|Fish||Just some generic fish confirmed to be edible.|
|Salmon||A kind of fish usually found in jungle waters.|
|Cod||A large fish found in deep saltwater, usually in colder regions. Can be salted to preserve.|
|Lobster||Caught with the fishing cage. Boiled lobster goes good with beer.|
|Octopus||Caught with the fishing cage. This seafood delicacy is a part of countless dishes around the world.|
