Starfish Harvesting is an ability that can only be used on a tile with a Starfish, removes the Starfish from the tile, and gives the player 8 stars. The ability is unlocked by the Navigation technology.

Moving any naval unit onto a Starfish, even in neutral or enemy territory, will allow it to collect 8 stars by removing the Starfish the next turn. This consumes the unit's turn, much like if it were examining a ruin.


  • Starfish were introduced in the Path of the Ocean update to replace Whales as the new aquatic resource harvested for stars.
  • In the subsequent Patch of the Ocean update, Starfish were changed to provide 8 stars instead of 10.
