What happens when the fishing deck is depleted? Players simply stop drawing cards when taking the fishing action?

This isn't in the rules at all, but I think it's reasonable that if you're supposed to draw a fish card and there are none, you instead score 1 VP (Victory Point).

My rationale is that fish cards that you still have score 1 VP each at the end of the game. This is lower than the a minimum of 2 VP if you trade with a merchant ship at a port, but you're also saving at least 1 action by not going to port.

(edited to clarify that I mean VP)

Sorry, I meant VP.

A privilege point seems often more valuable than 1 VP, and likely even 2 VP? Although they're only worth 1/5 of a VP at the end of the game, there's a variety of ways you can use them that (depending on the situation) can generally be worth more than 2 VP in my estimation. For example, spending 1PP to swap house tiles on the neighboring islands can easily allow you to place an additional worker during Fishing; the additional worker can score you 2-4VP at the end of of each season, 2-4VP via island roof, and 1 coin during Earning (or perhaps 1-4VP via fountain roof).

From now on, the player just can't get any fish card.
But some players suggest us to give him some compensatory, so we are discussing the case.
We'll make an official FAQ to refresh it.
Thank you very much.

My first play (with four players) we had run out of fish and buildings by winter.

My rule book says if the fish supply is insufficient you instead gain 2 VP for each fish card.
