I have the same issue. I replayed this level 8 times. I tried upgrading the farms and that didn't help. I think it might be a glitch??

upgrade your crab shack to highest level - it uses 5 kelp to produce # of crab - so you end up getting 5 crab for 5 kelp at highest level - which gives you enough crab to pass the level.

I will not be purchasing this game due to level 5. I spent most of the hour that I had to "try" the game trying to figure out this level. I finally came on here to figure it out.

I understand that kind of strategy when you get up further in the game but not on level 5.

Just wanted to voice my opinion of Level 5.

Yes, I did that, and thank you, but then I didn't have enough kelp to make pearls to get the octupi out of the way to feed the big fish that I then had enough crabs for.
This is one VERY frustrating game, and I spent all my time on level 5. I love time management games like this and usually buy them. I didn't even get to enjoy the trial version. Thanks for the suggestion, though.

Hi ,

Welcome to the forums!!!

Please don't get frustrated!!!

You need first to upgrade at full the saw mill! Then collect all the kelps (13 in total) and proceed to upgrade at full the pearl and the crab farms. Then, you start to click on the pink octopus, and later on the big fishes. Only you need to use once two kelps to repair the pearl farm.

Hope this help , good luck !

Sorry but it take "5" kelp to replenish the crab farm each time. If you upgrade to get 3 crab at each harvest you need 20 kelp to get all 4 of the big fish...... Please help.

When you start the level, upgrade your lumber mill to max but don't build any of the farms until you're ready to fully upgrade them. Collect at least 39 wood, then build and fully upgrade both farms. I believe you need to restock the crab farm twice and the pearl farm once with kelp in order to finish feeding the fish/octopi. (You'll have lots of time, so take your time when feeding the octopi and make sure not to overstock either farm.)

HI,Merebito

A BIG thank you.I have been trying to sort this for over an hour! The annoying thing was I'd already done it once and couldn't remember HOW!!

At 71 I am not very good on the technical side of things.So thanks again.

All the best for the new year.

Marebito, you are a legend! Thank you from me too!
What were the developers thinking, putting this in at level five so that people get stuck on the trial and so frustrated that they won't buy the game?

As far as I can tell, the tutorial never even told us how to upgrade buildings. I found the placement of the sawmill difficult to upgrade because there were too many pop-ups at the top of the page. I did manage to upgrade sawmill and crab farm before time ran out, but not sure I will be purchasing this based on the fact that I already had to seek help to get through a level during the trial! I play TM games all the time - own dozens of them, and have never had to do that!
Thanks to those that answered, though. I have a feeling this would not have been an issue had I played any of the previous Island Tribe versions. But developers cannot assume that current players have played previous versions, and this is just bad development imho!

I purchased all of the previous Island Tribe games and enjoyed every one of them. HOWEVER, there is NO point in playing a "frustrating" game like this!!! I did purchase and am now terribly disappointed in what they have done. We play and purchase games to have fun and enjoy..........this is NOT FUN! I will now be very very very careful about purchases in the future! Seems there are a lot of Big Fish changes that are not for the good .
