The Sea Bass (スズキ, Suzuki) is a saltwater fish in the Animal Crossing series introduced in Animal Crossing. Throughout the Animal Crossing series, the Sea Bass is known for being an extremely common fish, as noted by the player in its catch quotes in Wild World, City Folk, and New Leaf.

Catch details[edit]

In Animal Crossing[edit]

In Animal Crossing, the Sea Bass does not appear from mid-August til mid-September.[1] Therefore, during the first fifteen days of September, only Red Snappers, Barred Knifejaws and, during rain, Coelacanths will appear in the sea. This allows the player to earn large amounts of Bells in a short time.

Donating to the museum[edit]

Like all fish and bugs in the Animal Crossing series, the Sea Bass can be donated to the museum by talking to Blathers, the curator. He will tell the player some information about it when the player donates it.

In Animal Crossing[edit]

"Even run-of-the-mill, common fish are valuable resources, you see. All part of the grand tapestry, wot! We will take excellent care of this fellow, oh yes. You can rest assured. Excellent care, indeed."

In Wild World[edit]

"The sea bass is a fleshy white fish with a rather delicate flavor, eh wot? It's tasty prepared any which way, but I recommend a non-traditional dish... Sashimi! Indeed, consume the fellow raw! You shan't be disappointed!"

In City Folk[edit]

"...Ah, hoo, the sea bass. In some parts of the world, these fish have a different name as juveniles. They change names once they mature, eh wot? What's more, these names can differ from region to region... It's almost as if the sea bass is some sort of secret agent, eh wot?"

The Sea Bass will appear in the sea fish tank located at the back of the aquarium section of the museum.

In New Leaf[edit]

"Sea bass are famous for their delicious white meat as well as their large size. If they ingest something inedible, they open up their mouths and gills and violently shake their heads. This generally manages to expel the foreign material, though it has the added effect of looking rather odd. Much like their freshwater cousins, sea bass have a strong pull, making them a great challenge for anglers."

In the Fishing Tourney[edit]

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, when given a Sea Bass during a Fishing Tourney, Chip will say:

"I must say, when it comes down to it, sea bass are delicious, no matter how you prepare them. And hey, they're pretty good even if you don't do anything to 'em! YUM!"

In New Horizons[edit]

When donating to Blathers or selecting "Tell me about this!" in New Horizons, he will provide the following information about the fish:

"Sea bass is a name given to a variety of different species of saltwater fish. They are a varied bunch with some as small as four inches and some as staggeringly ginormous as eight feet! "Sea bass" is a bit pedestrian, though. Many species have better names, such as "redbanded perch." Or the delightfully whimsical dusky grouper! Or the potato cod! WILL NO ONE THINK OF THE PINK MAOMAO?!"
