Hey all! Trying to find every critter in Animal Crossing: New Horizons can be a task in itself. There are so many to catch and some only appear at certain times of the day and year. We have compiled some of the critters that can be found in the game into our very own Animal Crossing: New Horizons Critterpedia Fish Guide. (For anyone looking for fish, you will find them in our ACNH Critterpedia Fish Guide here).

We have listed and named all fish in rows of 10. There is then a gallery of thumbnails for each fish that will give you the time and season that they can be found. Click on the thumbnail to enlarge. (Bear in mind that time and season shown is for Northern Hemisphere).

NOTE: It is a work in progress at the moment but with your help, we can make this the complete compendium. We will also credit those who contribute at the bottom of the page and what they contributed.
