OK, I can't find this in the rules explicitly one way or the other, but nobody else has asked so maybe I'm blind or it is obvious.

But how many boats can you launch per license? In other words, if I have one shrimp license, can I launch two shrimp boats?

Yes. You need a license to launch that type of boat, but you aren't restricted in the number of boats you can have in your fleet of that type.

Sorry to be a sour puss, but I think this should have been clearly spelled out in the game. That plus the issue of NOT requiring a processing boat to actually process fish. In the real world processing can and does take place on huge factory boats. It's actually thematic to require the ship to process.

Our first play was a disaster due to rules confusion. I'm going to try to give the game another chance, but badly written rules hit a nerve with me. It's one of the biggest problems in board gaming. As a former writing tutor it drives me up the wall. I see it in the vast majority of games I play and there's no excuse for it given the clear intelligence of so many game designers. I think it's because people are too close to the game and think rules are clear when they're not. These types of things would be caught if rules were edited by those who *haven't* played the game more than once or twice.

Totally agree . Same confusion for me and my wife, both on the number of boat issue and on that of the Process Vessel license... shake

Eh, we didn't find this confusing at all. It was more difficult to understand what strategy to use really...

I am a serious rules reader and I never got this. I read the rules multiple times before 1st play and it never occurred to me. Even re-reading after finding this thread I couldn't see anything that I'd missed.

But that's exactly why I do browse BGG threads once I've begun playing something new.

I didn't find any problem understanding both that I can launch as many boats as I want(....can)per respective license and that I only need the processing license to process fish. Especially for the last one the wording on the rulebook is clear- I think complaining is a bit not fair for this one.
