Well I'm not a supporter of hunting just for fun, but if ithas to be so, at least let divers buy a permit to hunt for the lobsters and use that money to fund a project like AWARE.

They will still be able to see the lobsters during the dive. Lobster hunting will be in specific sites so you can still enjoy the regular lobsters

I don't like that idea. I don't want to pay real life money to lobster hunt, or even bubble credits. Lobster hunting should be free

I like the idea ... in fact to be able to "claim" your lobster you will need to have a (virtual) Fish & Game license

But we have mouths to feed too :-)

What we could do is to allocate to project Aware X% of revenue coming from the sale of the fishing license

Unfortunately it took time and money to develop it .... and I need to pay my employees (real money .. not Bubble Credits).

You will be able to play the game for free .... but to report your lobsters (and see them listed in the statistics on the website) you will need to buy a fishing license.
Also, to avoid catching small lobsters (forbidden) you will need to buy a measuring gauge
And finally, if you want t ocollect more than one lobster at time .... you will need a game bag to hold your catch

Could there be some licences hidden and if you find them you get a couple weeks of access, then it is re hidden in different location and you have to find it again to get more access?

Looks like no lobster hunting for me. Darn I was really looking forward to it :-(

How much will a license cost?

Haven't decided yet .... the fishing license will be valid for 12 months (like in real like)

Most likely in the 300BC to 500BC range
