    @nuglife22 same. Figured I'd go back later or to a different spawn place. All I know is there are no fish in the sea. Opposite of real life and I hardly fish.

    Hi folks! I'm sorry for not adding to this thread sooner. Our teams are hoping to implement a fix for this issue with fish not spawning along the coast or in the seas / oceans in a future patch. As soon as we have a more concrete timeline, we'll share details with everyone here and on the official website. I appreciate everyone's continued patience and understanding in the meantime.

    @ubiexcellent Thanks for a sort of update but tbh we already knew that this would be fixed "in a future patch". The problem is the future is a long time! After having this BROKEN game for almost 2 months what we want is a definite timeline for this fix.

    I know it's not your fault and that the forum people are not the devs or business people behind the game but similar to what other people said, after 2 months we went from " fix is already scheduled for an upcoming update" as said by woofer on December 23rd to "Our teams are hoping to implement a fix for this issue with fish not spawning along the coast or in the seas / oceans in a future patch.". That's just bad communication and a bit insulting to the end users. Yeah, eventually most bugs will be fixed...
    Again, apologies for "picking" on you. Not your fault. Please try to pass this further so the right people acknowledge it.

    Cheers!

    PS4 here... Big Flatfish and Big Mackerel are nowhere to be found.

    Tested every theory, checked all YT videos... nothing.
    This thread helped me to find small sturgeon, so thanks everyone

    I even walked by the coast almost entire Norway... Big Mackerel does not exist, and it was pain to even spawn any fish.
    Also, maybe it is just me... but i was not able to find any small boat in Norway.

    I had issues when shooting an arrow to some of the big fish, it caused them do de-spawn almost instantly leaving only a circle of blood in the sea...

    @andychelsea420 @caspeer_costel I'm extremely sorry that I wasn't able to provide any new information on this issue, but I do hope that my update still provided some relief regarding our team's continued activity on this bug. I'm afraid that at this time, we do not have a solid date that we can provide which is why I didn't include this earlier. This information will be provided by the development team to us, which we will then be able to share with everyone here.

    Fish won’t reel in completely on boat as well as why are there no fish in the ocean off the coast I’ve spent hours searching
    Bjorn not staying in ship load out.
    Critical items not dropping when hunting.

    @jameshfoster Hi there, and thanks for reaching out about these issues you're facing. Our teams are aware of and working on fixing the issue with fish not spawning at the coast or in the ocean as well as the issue with Bjorn being removed from the ship crew. Both of these should be fixed in future patches! For the other bugs you reported, please look for similar threads or create a new one if needed, so we can address those separately.

    I was having an issue where no fish would spawn. I read somewhere to leave the animus and go back in and it would help. I did so and the sea was full of fish for 5 seconds and they disappeared. I tried this 4 times and it kept happening. I threw my line out, then opened this thread to see if there was a fix and my line caught a fish, giving me the last one I needed for the fishing trophy and giving me the platinum. Hope this helps.

    @foggy2dm Many thanks for adding your experience here! I also hope this helps others as a temporary solution until a longer-term solution has been implemented.

    @ UbiExcellent @foggy2dm That is NOT a fix!! You still don't have Big Flatfish nor Big Mackerel, nor Big Eel!!! Shame on @UbiExcellent for not even knowing the difference after 3 months of this garbage.

    For the record since people still don't know, you ONLY need one of EACH fish for achievement. NOT one of each size!! ALSO, you can use an arrow to kill them. You do NOT need to use the fishing line to get all of them. I rarely used the line and got the ach. to pop up after arrow kills. Probably a bug like everything else. Fix the game already. Add the damned things to reda's shop or put them in loot boxes. Disable the bad weather. Something. This 1-2 months per patch release is 100% total garbage. Should be hotfixing this nonsense with utmost priority.

    Look man, this is common behavior for Devs. Keep saying they are working on the issue until eventually everyone beats the game and moves on. They have no intention of fixing this, that should be obvious by now. Just remember this on the next AC release and think twice about pre-ordering or buying that season pass. If you show your disapproval with your wallet, THAT they will listen to.

    @durwin52 Well now that the 1.1.1 title update is fixing nearly all of the major story line bugs, the devs can shift priorities to start working some of these side quest issues. A lot of people really don't understand the effort it takes for research and re-produce issues, review code to find out why the behavior is the way it is and the associated underlying conditions causing the behavior, developing a fix, testing the fix so that not only the intended fix works, but you don't end up breaking more stuff. Not every developer works on EVERY area. Some have specialties or are more familiar with some areas than others. I get you're frustrated but they just pushed out another major update within 30 days of the last one and with more content on the way they aren't going to leave an in-game mission impossible to complete. It will be fixed in time.

    Should I be impressed? What would have really impressed me was a game that launched without dozens of bugs to begin with. Unfortunately, that appears to be to much to ask for now a days. Now your telling us, "you should be happy if the game is in full working order within .... hmmm .. you can give us three months right?" ...No, I'm not impressed.

    @durwin52 I'm not saying you should be impressed at all. Yes there was a lot of story line bugs and more than there should have been for a released game. That's all something the development team will take a hard look at in an after action review meeting to figure out why it happened. There's nothing that's going to change that now. All we can do is support the development team by providing the detail the need especially in cases where exact reproduction steps can be done. A 30-day patch timeline is exactly what I was thinking would have happened and it was exactly that. Now we as the players test out the fixes to make sure they really are fixed and if they aren't then we provide constructive feedback to the team so they can re-look if needed. You can probably bet you'll see another title update around Feb 15th but probably not any sooner than that unless there is a catastrophic break.

    Ultimately nothing is ever released without bugs. Even with big companies like Microsoft, there are always updates to fix and improve things.

    OR!!, and I know this is dramatic, but maybe... just maybe!!!, we should think twice about that pre-order and season pass on the next game. If enough people show their disapproval at the state of the previous game with their wallets, it may actually get a message across. Extreme I know but ... *shrug*

    @durwin52 You're right. That's your choice but you could end up with something like Cyberpunk instead. I was highly looking forward to that game but delay, delay, delay and I was thinking they are really fine-polishing it for release. It released and what a mess. Now lawsuits, game being pulled from online stores and the amount of bugs and graphical issues is astronomical even when they were given more time. The grass isn't always greener on the other side but regardless, if I purchase a game I will help the support team doing whatever I can as a gamer to provide constructive feedback so things can be improved for all both for the current game and future games. Either way. I hope our fish fix isn't too far down the list of priorities since it affects an in-game mission and an Ubisoft Connect mission.

    Your train of thought rings a bit hollow for me... seems like you are trying to make a false equivalency with Cyberpunk ... I thought we were talking about Ubi... not CDPR. Anyway I can honestly say that any bug fixes put out after the majority of the player base has completed the game is a failure, plain and simple. It's a failure for CDPR and it's a failure for Ubi, and when people come out and try to forgive failings, well that's counter productive isn't it? We have a right to feel disappointed and we have a right to voice that disappointment on the next release, which I fully intend on doing.

    I’m still sat with one fish left to find before I platinum the game. Keep checking the forums and websites for any sign of update just so I can catch this 1 fish! I’ve tried everything that people have been suggesting on here with no luck. 130+ hours and 1 fish keeping me from platinum! Very annoying and frustrating but here’s hoping they’re actually looking into it.
    recently been playing Immortals: Fenyx Rising also on PS5 and it plays perfectly. Blags my brain how they can make such a perfect performance game such as this Immortals at launch yet Assassin’s Creed they fail to do. For anyone reading this highly recommend Immortals!
    but yeah let’s hope for this update!

    Did they fix the fish spawns in the new patch or completely ignore that?
