This article is about the unit in Age of Empires. For the unit in Age of Empires III, see Fishing Boat (Age of Empires III).
Fishing Boats essentially serve as Villagers on ships in Age of Empires. However, their only function is to gather Food from fish schools around the ocean and then drops it to the nearest Dock. They have no offensive capability and can be built from the Stone Age as soon as the game begins. Boats are twice as resistant to conversions than regular units

Upgrades Edit

Fishing Boats can be upgraded to a Fishing Ship upon reaching the Bronze Age which are faster and can gather more food.

History Edit

The Fishing Boat represents a small, primitive vessel for use by one or a few fishermen. The first boats were probably dugout canoes, made from a single large log. These were excavated by fire and adze. Despite the passage of time and great technological advances in all areas, there are more log-hull boats in use today than of any other single type.
