Coastal Fishing Beds.

Proteus, god of the seato Everyone

Somewhat apropos to my last post, thanks to the efforts of my order, especially Aphaia, every coastal location now has a boat with a fishing net.

As before, you are welcome to use them provided you don't steal any of the equipment. The boats are there for all who wish to parttake in the bounty of the sea.

My ultimate intent in having this fleet deployed, however, is to measure what locations are yielding a bounty of fish and which are not. For a time, I was encouraging fish to swim into the nets. Now I need a situation where I can be sure that all the nets have been emptied of the fish that obeyed my will and then a period when I can be sure no one is emptying nets that are filling.

So it is my will that you all empty the nets of fish as much as you like from now until 1 Midsummer 1273. From that date on, no one is to fish from the nets and boats around the coast. (Potfishing is fine.) When I am satisfied that I have a proper measure of my domain along the coast, I will free you all to fish again.
