According to TechRaptor, there are two ways for them earn Shells - by selling either what they have caught from the coastline or what dishes they are cooking using the seafood and other ingredients that they had in hand through the vending machine.
However, the profit that they will be earning will depend on their value, especially their cooked dishes. The prices of these dishes will be affected by what fishes and other seafood used for it.
For example, a duck-billed trout, which is worth 5 Shells, and a banana mackerel, which is worth 70 Shells, can be used in the same dish.
However, if they are used in a dish that can sold for 20 Shells, it will increase former's value, but it will decrease the latter's. Hence, they can either use it in a higher value dish, or sell it as it is.
Also, they need to consider the profit that they will earn while selling dishes. These can be indicated to the bottom of a recipe in their cookbook, where they need to subtract the cost, or how many Shells it took to make it, with its selling price.
The higher the difference, the higher the profit they earn after selling it, hence they need to consider cooking dishes that has low cost required, but has a high selling point to gain more Shells.
