    I do not have a suggestion to how much they should be worth, points-wise, but just as the colored wood and ingots give more points than regular wood and iron ingots, I believe these should be included on the turn-ins...

    I don't think I have done enough fishing to assess the situation so I will ask. Is any one type of crap or lobster more rare than the others? Also if they did that would it not be safe to assume in all fairness that "named" fish should be in too?

    From the data I have collected so far, none of the named crabs/lobsters are any more rare than the others.

    You can already turn them in for 10 points a piece, because they count in the total of normal crabs/lobsters of the direction they are facing. I accidently lost some Crusty Lobsters this way once, as I did not realize they were part of the total (that set me back an hour of fishing).

    I would like to see "recovered from a shipwreck" items added to the community collection instead.

    That sounds like a pretty good idea. :)

    Putting named fish into the collections sounds like a good idea but really doesnt make much sense. 10 name crab/lobster go for 150k or more on my shard. 150k gold is 10,000 points.

    Recovered from ship wreck stuff should go into the collection. I think too that lobsters and crabs should be worth more. Scales are 20 gp per. They are far easier to get. My fisher gets them not my tamer. I dont know why tamers even get a person at the library since they have their very own zoo!

    Well I guess the items from the tamer could be converted to be given to that other lady who takes the hides...but then they would be 1 npc short for the glasses and such? I am a little hazy this morning, were the zoo and library put in at the same time? (just thinking that could be a reason also)

    The Zoo, Library, and the Museum (in Vesper) collections were all put in at the same time.

    Since "Named" Crabs/Lobsters already have a use, with fishmonger orders, before seeing them as possible turn ins to the Community Collection Fisher I'd much more prefer to see instead as Community Collection turn-ins the "rare" (not really) fish books which are given as a (not much usefull...) reward for fishmonger orders....

    At least, players, instead of getting upset to have wasted their fish/crabs/lobsters when getting them, will have a possible use for them, as turn-ins to the Community Collection Fisher.....

    Of course, since the books have different rarity, the points they would get as turn-ins should vary, depending on the rarity of the book.
