"I've caught ALL of the fish! You'd think I'd have a pun for this occasion..."
player, Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Fish are collectible creatures in the Animal Crossing series that can be caught with a Fishing Rod. They can be donated to the museum, sold for Bells, placed as a piece of furniture, or given to C.J. to create models (only in New Horizons). Fish can be found in various bodies of water, including rivers, ponds, and the sea. All fish have a shadow size that can be used to roughly identify them, and some fish such as the Great White Shark are finned.

Unlike bugs, many fish are available year-round; however, the largest amount of fish are available during the summer months in the Northern Hemisphere. The most valuable fish in the Animal Crossing series are the Barreleye, Coelacanth, Dorado, Golden Trout, Great White Shark, and Stringfish, which sell for 15,000 Bells each in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. In all Animal Crossing games, the player will receive a Golden Fishing Rod once they catch every species of fish. The Golden Fishing Rod gives the player more time to reel in fish after they bite.
