Animal Crossing: New Horizons Fish Prices – when and where to find every fish

By James Billcliffe, Wednesday, 13 May 2020 17:00 GMT

Landing every fish in Animal Crossing: New Horizons is a tough task. So grab a rod, in this full guide we’ll go over where and when to find each and every aquatic animal. From guppies to sharks, from eels and rays to the illusive coelacanth – we’ll detail when they unlock along with a list of the fish prices in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, so you know which to prioritise for selling. We’ve also updated the month-to-month tables to include the fish prices too.

First, before you can stuff any wriggling fish into your waiting pockets, you’ll need to craft a fishing rod at a DIY bench, or at Residential Services using Tom Nook’s station. If you’re out and about on another island, speak to Wilbur and he can put in a requisition order for tools – but will charge you in Nook Miles.

As you acquire more DIY recipes, you’ll gain access to better tools. However, if you want the best of the best, you’ll need to make Golden Tools – which we have a full page on how to make here.

Where to find fish in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

The fish in Animal Crossing: New Horizons appear as shadows in the water in a variety of places. This includes the sea around your island, in rivers, as well as in-land ponds. Ponds are the small self-contained bodies of water which don’t lead anywhere else.

That’s not all you have to contend with though. Some fish can only be found in ponds and rivers on cliff tops you reach with a ladder. The critterpedia specifies a different between clifftop rivers and ponds – however anecdotal evidence suggests you can find clifftop fish in any elevated water.

As for fish that are found at the river mouth, this is where the running water meets the sea at the edge of your island. While some of the priciest fish can only be caught off the wooden piers that jut out onto the ocean.

Catch rare spawning fish – like Tuna and Blue Marlin at the pier – with fish bait

While you can know where to find a fish, making it appear is another question entirely. Dig up the spouts of water you see on beaches to collect Manilla Clams. These are used to craft fish bait. Next, scatter the fish bait in the area you know the rare fish can spawn and be persistent. It probably won’t work first time.

For pier fish like the Blue Marlin and Tuna, I’d suggest heading to a Nook Miles Ticket island, then scattering your bait off the pier next to Wilbur.

Below is a list of all 80 species of fish you can catch in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, including the time of day they’re active, where on islands they pop up, and the months of the year they reveal themselves. Not all of the fish look the same when they’re underwater though. There are 6 types of shadow size, with a couple of variants.

Eels are uniquely long and thin, whereas you can see the fin of big sharks and ocean sunfish. Otherwise, the sizes go in order of: tiny, small, medium, large, XL, and XXL.

Our lists focus on where we live in the northern hemisphere. If you live in the southern hemisphere, you need to add six months onto the dates to find your fish prices.

This data comes from the embedded YouTube video by BeardBear, so if you want a visual representation of what all of the fish look like when you catch them, start the following video from 6:43:

If for whatever reason you can’t watch the video, the information is also in a table below. The additional price data comes from the Animal Crossing wiki community under CC-BY-SA license, which means you can also use and remix the data as you wish.

According to the Animal Crossing Official Companion, some fish only unlock after you’ve caught a certain amount of other fish. We’ve updated the table to reflect this.
