For the initial setup, should there be Fish tokens on the 5 Sea Port spaces as they are a light blue water spaces too? I was looking through the rule book but there was no mention otherwise, while the image there shows no fish tokens...
It may not be explicitly mentioned, but I'm quite sure that the intent is that fish tokens are never placed in the port water spaces, as confirmed by the set-up diagram. This makes thematic sense as well - the idea of the game is that you go out of the harbour to do your fishing.
If the image is suppose to be a guide, why is there only 1 fish token on the highest dark blue space?? Although this doesn't affect the gameplay much, I would still like to hear a clarification. Thank you
You're quite right, this is a mistake in the rulebook. My 10 year-old-son picked this up as well when reading the rules the first time. At the time I checked with the designer, who confirmed that the deep water (dark blue) area at the very top in the set-up diagram should show two fish tokens in it, not one.
