Fish with [SWIMS_INNATE] do not have swimming skills to work with the token and can't move in water even if they can breathe within it. Amphibious creatures can just path to non dangerous land land and passively pick up swimming skills that way.

Inspecting them as described in mantis note #0036263 will show that they have no natural swimming skills (or dabbling via training them to swim by being caught up in strong water pressure) and also percieve the water around them as being *dangerous terrain* and therefore wont move unless the water is 'safe' at about 3/7ths. Which is obviously dangerous for purely aquatic creatures which will get stranded and die.

In the save there is a pile of dead tigerfish that tried to get off their river biome exit while it was depleted at 3/7ths and below but failed. There are still tigerfish in the river to help you watch this behavior yourself as well as the air choking tigerfish at the top of the pile. Don't worry about the fortress, it is self sustainable.

> River exit is on the left hand side, look there before unpausing. DFhack is recommended to inspect the behavior besides the obvious movements of the fish learning how to swim after getting caught in the water pressure then making their way to the map exit.
