has just rolled out their brand new Fish Mastery feature, which has been long awaited due to some players receiving it early because of the way Zynga does their feature testing. Fish Mastery is a neat way to unlock new fish and to give yourself a brand new challenge while playing FishVille. Here at Games.com we have a comprehensive Fish Mastery guide so you can know everything you need to know about this new exciting feature.
To access Fish Mastery, there is a little tab on the right side of your FishVille screen. If you click this, you'll see a question mark button in the upper left corner of the screen that pops up. This is the help screen, and it offers a good explanation on how Fish Mastery works.
The basic idea is that you have to buy and raise fish, then sell them once they're grown in order to collect Mastery Points. Once you have enough Mastery Points, you will unlock the next fish in that fish family. Selling a fish at age 1 is the best recommended age to get the most Mastery Points. Each level has a specific amount of points required to unlock the next fish. You will earn 1 point for buying a fish in the tier, and 2 points for selling it as an adult fish.
Different families of fish will become unlocked as you gain higher in level, but only the first fish in each family is automatically unlocked. The rest need to be unlocked by gaining the specified Mastery Points in the progress bar above the family. Each fish is a mystery until you unlock it, so it will be a surprise to find out which fish you have unlocked. As of release, there are currently 6 different fish families to master.
For example, you buy and sell the Pink Skunk Clown fish over and over again until you have gained the required 290 points to unlock the next fish, the Fire Clownfish. Next, you need to gain enough points to unlock the Clarkii Clownfish, and then the Black Percula. This is the only way to get these unlockable fish.
