Future versions of the game will give you more information. Plants will have a status telling you they are seeding or not. You dont want to pick plants for food after they have gone to seed because the nutrition level is low at that point so future farmers will have to let some go to seed and some they need to pick earlier.
The fish are a bit different they go male/female and that should be listed in the info window as well. If you need eggs then you should be able to harvest them so leave the females in.
Remember all this is an alpha test. The fact that you can grow the fish and eat them for now is the necessary part. I will be tuning each funcitonal object in the game a bit more as it progresses. The alpha version is to just get the stuff in there and make it more or less work. After I know what all needs to be in there then I can back track through each system and make it more realistic.

Great!
Murphy's Law applies "Anything that can possibly go wrong, does." or some say it this way "If anything can go wrong, it will.
