When in a nr40 game when there is water, how many fishing ships should I have and how many villies.

Uh, I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say 99/99...unless you're playing Germany or India where you have to leave a little room for the free Uhlans and/or villies.

Fishing boats: at least enough to fill up all the available whales, maybe not exactly 99 because once you run out of fish you'll have to start deleting boats, and its a waste of wood. so maybe 65 boats.

99 Vills/All whales covered/lotsa boats for fish, then delete the extra boats on fish. They will make up their cost in the food they gather (I think)

By the time treaty ends, with 99 vills/99 fb's, you'll have a few hundred thousand resources. You could then afford to delete most/all of your fishing boats.

I'd say get more settlers than fishing boats. Fishes only provide with little meat whereas whales provide unlimited gold.

You do want to have a good fishing fleet, if only to fish them all up before your enemy can build HIS fleet. But again, trading maybe 10,000 food on the water for the 2500-3500 wood it takes to build an aggressive fishing fleet (not includeing whalers) especially early in treaty is difficult.
