The Tilapia (pronounced t|ᵻ|ˈ|l|ɑː|p|i|ə, "tih-LAH-pee-ə") is a fish, introduced in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. The player can only fish for it at the river.

Donating to the Museum[edit]

As with all fish in the Animal Crossing series, the Tilapia can be donated to the museum, followed by a small talk by Blathers about it.

In New Horizons[edit]

Further information[edit]

Tilapia are mainly freshwater fish inhabiting shallow streams, ponds, rivers, and lakes. Historically, they have been of significant importance in artisanal fishing in Africa, and they are of increasing importance in aquaculture and aquaponics. Tilapia can become a problematic invasive species in new warm-water habitats such as Australia, whether purposefully or accidentally introduced, but generally not in temperate climates due to their inability to survive in cold water.
