I'd like to reach out to you all with an update. I'm happy to announce that the development team intend to deploy several fixes in regards to fishing in TU 1.2.2. This update will be deployed 15 June, 2021 at 2 PM CEST / 8 AM ET. The team are deploying a fixes for the following issue:
- Addressed an issue that prevented players from catching fish from a small boat.
- Addressed various issues with Ubisoft Core Challenges unlocking (Stinky but Deadly)
If you are still encountering trouble with either of these issues following TU 1.2.2, please don't hesitate to update this thread so we can take a closer look. Please include a video that shows the following:
- You have the latest Title Update installed on your platform. You can view this information in the opening game menu in the bottom right-hand corner.
- The issue you're still encountering in-game (such as Stinky but Deadly remaining locked despite meeting the requirements).
Additionally, please ensure that you have an up-to-date save uploaded to the cloud. We can then pass these reports to the development team for further investigation.
I'd also like to provide you all with an update regarding the missing fish. Following TU 1.2.1, big flatfish / mackerel and small halibut / sturgeon were added to selected locations in-game. We have not yet had any new information about these fish being added into additional locations in TU 1.2.2. As the development team mentioned they intended to release a full fix for this issue in June in their Dev Blog, I have reached out to them for an update. As soon as we have any new information to share you about these missing fish, we will let you all know within this thread as soon as we are able to.
EDIT 15 June 2021, 15:10 UTC: The development team have reached out with an update about the repopulation of the missing fish. They should now be more widely available throughout the world for you to catch!
If you are still unable to find big flatfish/mackerel or small halibut/sturgeon whilst fishing in the world, please don't hesitate to reach out so we can investigate this further.

I find it very insulting that Ubisoft would be quick to patch out a way for players to make silver quicker and more easily, yet can't fix a bug with gameplay costing players hours of their time.

Thanks for continuing to update this thread. I'd like to reach out to you all with an update, as well as address a few specific posts.
The development team are still looking into missing large flatfish/mackerel. At this moment, we have no new information to share regarding this investigation. Once we have any new information to share with you all, it will be posted within this thread, so please keep an eye out for this!
The team have also been able to replicate the flying fish issue, and are taking a closer look at this as well. From what we can tell, this tends to affect large fish more than any other size. Both myself and @Ubi-Woofer have experienced flying large fish in our own gameplay as well. If you notice any other sizes start flying, please post about this within the thread so we can pass this information on. Thanks!
A few of you have mentioned compensation within this thread. Please note that this is at the discretion of the Assassin's Creed: Valhalla team. If compensation is to be offered to players, this information will be shared on our official platforms and within the News & Announcements forum. Additionally, if a hot-fix is announced, or if an alternative method to get these fish (such as via a fish market or by looting soldiers in River Raids) is made available, this will also be shared within the News & Announcements forum.
@DESCAF - I'm sorry to hear you're having trouble keeping small sturgeon in your inventory. If possible, would you be able to send us a video that shows you catching a small sturgeon and it not staying in your inventory? We can then pass this along to the development team for further investigation.
@erdosifazy & @JCar4327 - Based off what I've seen, it's three regular eels that are required.

Hey guys, calm down, ok !!
Big Mackerel and Big Flatfish are definitely out of the game due to scripting errors botched by Ubisoft programmers.
18 GB update, but no 10 KB script can be repaired? A special kind of poverty certificate and ignorance
we all know ubisoft in that way since settler games

@ubi-borealis oki If you don't know the difference between regular flatfish and big flatfish, don't talk about flying flatfish because it doesn't matter. I can hear the laughter up to this point from the programmers for the successful fooling of the players because its impossible to find what is not there
@ubi-borealis Thanks for the update about the regular eel being needed rather than the large eel, the whole reason the big eel was even brought into this thread is because some other players had posted it was needed for the final delivery. If large eel are not needed to complete that final delivery then there is no reason for the team to determine if they are even in the game because they are not needed for anything in regards to completion.
I have had fish other than just big fish go flying. This happens often when you are on a boat, not so much when you are fishing from land. I believe it is related to the problem I had in one of my videos where I just could not reel in the fish no matter how long I tried. When this occurs, it generally seems as if the fish is ignoring the commands for reeling it in; the fish will just swim past you or away from you and when it passes close enough that Eivor should scoop it up the fish just keeps going. When you are on a boat and this happens the fish will fly up over the boat to get past it.
Just my suggestion, but if they could just change the requirements to something other than the large fish then we could just move past this. Maybe make it 6 regular size instead of 3 large size.

I was happily fishing for the boy in Ravensthorpe and caught most of the fish in Rykjafylke. So I went on to search for a big mackerel. I've searched for hours until I finally gave up and searched online. Seems i'm not the only one with no big mackerel Haven't tried the flatfish yet but I have a feeling it's not there either. I'm on Xbox One by the way, not sure if that platform was already mentioned or not (this thread is huge).

If it is so difficult for the Dev team to fix the big flatfish/mackerel spawn, how about just simply changing the fish requirement at the fishing hut to a different fish that already exists.
On PC, with patch 1.1.2 when in a fishing boat (this seems important) not a raiding ship, land or dock, fish spawns in England's ocean are there in the plenty, but there still are no Big Flat Fish. I have tried for many hours and I have caught over 50 regular flat fish and never have seen a big one. I see tons of Big Bream and Big Sturgeon.
- you guys: Addressed an issue that prevented players from catching fish in the sea or on coastlines. (if you fish off of a fishing boat)
But the not the issue about Big Flat Fish and Big Mackerel not existing for 99% of us.... as of 2/22/2021
Pretty sure the 1% are hallucinating.
@keep They know. Check this thread. They may move your post there any way.

Please dear Odin, I care not for the compensation, but only for the Large Flatfish and Large Mackerel (assuming we only need regular eel for the final delivery). Then, I will be at peace, and grateful this game got released on time despite COVID shutdowns.
