Meat and fish

Post by the great unwashed on Fri Apr 06, 2012 11:34 am

I know that a ton of meat will feed two thousand souls. How many will a ton of fish feed?

I think there is something in the Rule Book somewhere on this subject, or that you can invest in a fishing fleet to help eleviate hunger during a famine. Not 100% sure where this is in the book though. Sorry.

Sorry, did not notice this was a Scramble for Empire question so gave a Glory of Kings answer.

Ok, then this is what Defoe`s Illuminations page 20 say on the matter

Fishing

To gain 1 tonne fish from fisheries (where you have any as a trade investment), 1 pound is taken off your fishing profits, but without reducing the fisheries percentage if not your only trade in an area.
If 2 tonnes are taken per 1 pound investment in the fishing industry the fisheries will be wiped out, but it is permitted to allow fish to reduce a grain shortage.

Thanks. I know the quantities available. I just wanted to know how many people a ton of fish will feed. 1000 or 2000.

Sorry, misunderstanding. I assume that 1 ton of fish will feed 1000 but you can always ask your chancellor in game if you are uncertain.

While we are on the question of feeding the hungary masses, I know there have been instances of players organising hunting parties to help eleviate famine. Do you need to invest recruits for this, or is it more a Royal hunting party with a symbolic handing over of the animals killed?
Does it have any other long term effects on EH etc?

You just order a culling of the wild animals and a certain amount of meat will appear depending on several factors probably.
The main problem is that the nobles have been using these animals as a source of income and recreation so there will be a big blow to noble tax income on the next income turn at least, but EH as such is not affected as far as I know.

Hunts generally provide 5000 tons of meat per million population. In my experience it has never affected EH or revenues from the nobles. It does seem to benefit honour but that may just be the type of nation i play. However it can only be done once per year otherwise you decimate the wildlife.
