    Fish off is not a phrasal verb. They fished on a boat; "off their own coasts" is a prepositional phrase used as an adverb and answering the question "where?" Off the coast means a little way out from the shoreline.

    No, this is from boats not more than a few miles off shore. otherwise, it is fishing on the shore (coast).

    "off" here is a preposition.

    It means they fished in the sea, not near the shore.

    the verb 'to fish' means to catch fish

    'off the coast' means the water near the coast

    It means that they fished (in a boat) in locations close to their own coasts.
