Deep sea fishing chum not working.

Yesterday I sent out a Level 3 trawler to collect Cod. It was configured as follows:
1 x Graphite Rod (Cod)
1 x Roy (Fish per hour)
1 x Victor (Fishing time)
6 x Lobster chum (+25% each for a total of 150%)

This should have caught 120 cod minus the hazard % and before the chum bonus is added. The boat returned with 96 cod and only harvested the 96 cod, no chum bonus which should have been 150% before hazard %.
Even taking the hazard % into account this should have harvested 240 Cod which it did not. Is it yet another bug or am fishing up the wrong tree?

    @funki (US1) Chum adds more catch to your boat not storage, it has no affect on the storage capacity of your boat. So you get your normal catch as per your crew and then a bonus % for using chum.

    @funki (US1) I hear what you are saying but please understand that chum ADDS to your normal catch. I only use chum during the FHWE to increase the harvested amount of fish.

    @Fallen (INT1)  Sorry, you are mistaken.  Chum does not add fish to your catch.  In the formula for "fish caught"  chum acts as a increase to the fish/hour rate.  The total amount of fish caught (removed  from the pool) and carried back on the boat will never exceed the boat capacity,  The number of fish in the boat can be increased by a sparkle (ghost rod) anytime before unloading but that is the only way your harvest will ever be more than the boat capacity


    in the OP example the level 3 trawler has 120 capacity and unloaded 96 - which suggests there were two 10% Hazard penalties.  While the OP implies the pool only went down by 96 cod, I suspect that is incorrect and that 120 were  actually removed from the pool.

    @funki (US1)  and @Lylu (INT1)  I apologise.  I was really under the wrong impression about the chum. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. :smile:
  • In the fish market, orders for specific types of chum cannot be filled. So now everything I have already filled in the order will be trashed.

    Yes they can but it will take a long time in most cases. All types of chum can be made so they can be sold or put into contracts.
