What are Fish in Animal Crossing: New Horizons[edit]

Scattered around your island, you will often find unique fish that can be caught and collected.

Upon catching these fish, players will unlock them in the new phone app, Critterpedia. This extensive library will showcase every bug and fish that you have encountered and caught, along with a detailed breakdown of their active hours, most common locations, and the seasons / months in which they will appear.

Once the Museum is open on your island, you will also have the ability to donate your catches. While you won’t receive any rewards for doing so, your Museum will begin to look pretty neat once it begins to fill up with new finds.

Alternatively, if collecting isn’t your thing and you’re after some extra cash, fish can be sold for Bells. While some fish will be worth more than others, players can use these Bells to purchase furniture and other useful items such as tools.

How to Catch Fish[edit]

Catching fish in Animal Crossing: New Horizons is very much the same as previous games in the series, as you will firstly need to equip a Fishing Rod.

In order to obtain the fishing rod, the player can either craft one through DIY crafting or simply purchasing one from the shop in Resident Services.

Once you have your new fishing gear equipped, make your way towards the water and look for the small dark shadows of fish swimming in the nearby area. With the fish located, cast your rod towards the shadow and wait for the fish to hook on!
