Donating to the Museum in New Leaf
When donated to the museum, it is found on the primary tank in the first room of the fish exhibit, in the northeast portion of the tank. The information board in the aquarium will list information about this deep-sea creature:
"Also called "northern shrimp," they have a life span of about 5 years, in which they are male for half. After that time, the shrimps change genders and become females, a rather unique feature of the species. The females are a popular sashimi dish, but they don't instantly have their characteristic sweetness. That sweetness actually comes out after they're left to sit for a day, making them a dish of patience."
