The fisher pier is a medium sized building that can only be placed on a shore. It is mainly used to catch fish that can be used as raw food for your Nuggets. It has an average build time from its resource requirements and build points. The Fishing Perk must be researched before this building becomes available.
Once constructed, the fisher pier can immediately support the employment of one nugget as a Fisherman. Another spot can be unlocked later in the future.
The fisherman is responsible for catching fish, gutting them, and storing what's left as raw food.
When the fisherman sail out to sea, they will only catch a maximum of four fish per trip. Once done, they will return to the pier and begin gutting the caught fishes. Finishing that, they will store the gutted fishes as raw food which will then become available for collection by the Cooks at the Eatery, or for normal consumption by other nuggets.
Nuggets that eat raw food provided by the fisher pier will only satisfy their hunger up to 75%.
Keep in mind, fish are a finite resource. Mass fishing a body of water will quickly lead to the depletion of fish. Furthermore, during the winter season fishing piers will be closed.
Clicking on the fisher pier will open its information panel which includes:
- Currently hired nuggets.
- The remaining fish population for the body of water the fisher pier is built on.
- Amount of caught fish that still need to be gutted.
- Amount of raw foods stored in the fisher pier.
- The current durability of the fisher pier itself.
- The power and water requirement meters.
