Summary0010901: Fisherdwarves keep fishing after filling up all food stockpiles in the fort
DescriptionFisherdwarves will keep fishing after they've filled up all the stockpiles with fish, with minimal regard for their other needs and with no regard for rate of consumption.
This has two effects. First, it degrades the fisherdwarf's mental health. Second, it creates a pile of rotten and rotting fish on the fishing spot.
Two reasonably skilled fishermen are able to "maintain" a 100+ pile of rotting fish under their feet, while other dwarves are constantly taking the fish straight to the dumpster. The (relatively) small proportion of fish that doesn't get taken straight to the dump could easily feed 50 dwarves, assuming the entire fort consumes nothing but fish.
Steps To ReproduceEnable fishing labor for 3-4 dwarves. Easier to notice in smaller forts.
Additional InformationFish weren't equipable, was not able to slap.
TagsNo tags attached.

In the extreme case with very good fishermen it can prevent the entire fort from socializing or religious activity.

The parts which aren't covered by 0004930 are solidly in suggestion territory. The game allows you to screw up fortress management in a wide variety of ways: sending too many dwarves fishing is not a bug; it's player-error.
