Donating to the museum[edit]

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf[edit]

The information board in front of the tank that houses the giant trevally says the following:

"Though you wouldn't guess it because of their size, giant trevallys are actually a type of mackerel. Unlike normally slim and sleek mackerels, giant trevallys have wide, silver bodies. Surprisingly, though, these fish cannot tolerate the cold, so they tend to live in warmer places. Their jaw strength is great enough to bite off a person's finger, so be very careful when fishing for them!"

In Animal Crossing: New Horizons[edit]

"The giant trevally, as befits its name, can reach six feet in length and 180 pounds! Its size and strength have made it a favored opponent for anglers since time immemorial. They are also ingenious hunters, sometimes taking advantage of other predators to distract their prey. There have even been documented cases of them attacking—gulp—birds."

Once donated, the giant trevally can be found in the north-east room of the fish exhibit, in the large central tank with the porthole windows. It will often swim near the glass wall, and sometimes will try to pierce the anchovy school, scattering them for a moment—it shares this behavior with many of the large fish also in this tank.


Real-world information[edit]

The giant trevally is a large fish located in the tropical waters of the Indo-Pacific region. It has a typical silver color, but males may turn black as they grow older.
