PSA: Here’s All the Fish Leaving Animal Crossing: New Horizons Soon

So long, and thanks for all the us ...

With Animal Crossing: New Horizons quickly becoming most people’s preferred instance of reality, scores of new island dwellers are doing their absolute best to touch every peace of blessed content in this much-needed escape from what I had, until recently, only half-seriously referred to as a spiraling hell dimension. And whether this is your first Animal Crossing adventure or your eighth, there’s plenty to learn and even more to remember. For instance, did you know that the available fish change with the passing seasons? I’ve been on the Animal Crossing train since the GameCube and today was the first I’d heard about it.

As it turns out, the first seasonal fish migration happens at the end of this month. Thankfully, the good folk over at AC Pocket News and the New Horizons Fandom Wiki have put together this ultra-helpful infographic for both Northern and Southern hemisphere islanders, which details all the fish that are leaving, as well as where they can be caught, and when. If you’re avoiding spoilers for any amount of Animal Crossing: New Horizon content, the rest of this post is not for you!


We’ve gone ahead and transcribed the infographic above into a couple of Ctrl+F-able tables, which you’ll find below, should that be something you’re interested in. Beyond capitalizing on the sheer bell value of some of these rare fish, it’s also important to remember that Blathers is an invaluable treasure, and that we must all work tirelessly to make sure his dream of a truly incredible museum is brought to fruition. As such, it would behoove us to donate one specimen of each fish listed below before they swim off to wherever it is that fish go when they’re not around. The moon?
