fish (kioslave) and RSA key

I have my rsa public key copied to authorized_keys on remote server, and I have created config file in .ssh with username and identity file of my choice (I have different identity files for different servers) I have different usernames on different servers and using ssh using config file (with different identity files for each entry) gives me no trouble logging into any of those accounts.

Fish always asks for password (because server username is different from my local computer.)
Question: How do I let fish know of the identity file (for a given username different than the one on local machine)?

Currently I use, "fish://remoteUser@remoteHost". How do I give it an identity file parameter?
