Wharves are raw resource buildings in Tropico 5. Their main use is providing Tropico with fish which can be used for local consumption, sold off as exports immediately, or sent to a cannery to be canned and sold off at a higher price. If an Oil Spill occurs, nearby Wharves will become unusable until the spill is cleaned up.
Fish population can be: none, scarce, moderate or abundant with a difference in production for each one.
Have you heard the one about the fisherman that was struck by a meteor? He always wanted to catch a big one! Not funny? He wasn't laughing either.
