Game Info[]

Bonus resource.


As the only sea bonus resource, and one of the few sea resources in general, Fish Fish is very important for all civilizations, but especially those that depend on the sea to thrive. Fish Fish is mainly a source of Food Food, but with the construction of a Lighthouse and a Seaport along with the Compass technology, the resource gains also Production Production and Gold Gold output. Its maximum yield when worked is +3 Food Food, +2 Production Production, and +2 Gold Gold (with Compass), on top of the +2 Food Food (and, without Brave New World, +1 Gold Gold) from the terrain itself.

Civilopedia entry[]

Fish have been an important source of protein for coastal dwellers for all of history. Fish remain an important foodstuff in the 21st century - so much so that there is increasing danger of depopulating the world's oceans of edible fish entirely.
