Unhygienix is out of fresh fish (as always), which is carted overland in ox-drawn carts from Lutetia, and Getafix says that he needs some for his potion. Asterix and Obelix borrow a boat from Geriatrix and go fishing. After a storm, they get lost, but despite Obelix's concerns, they do not reach the edge of the world; instead- following a brief encounter with the pirates-, they arrive on an island (which is actually North America) with delicious birds that the Gauls call "gobblers", bears and "Romans" with strange facial paintings.
