Do you experience a crash? Do you get this crash message:

LowLevelFatalError [File:Unknown] [Line: 3785] Retry was NOT sucessful.

To fix this, you need to validate your files through Steam.

  1. Right click Fishing: North Atlantic in your game library.
  2. Select Local Files tab
  3. Select Verify Integrity Of Game Files.

Even if it says All files successfully validated , it should still fix this issue.
