Can you catch new fish or bugs in Animal Crossing New Horizons Happy Home Paradise?

November 4, 2021

After the surprise launch of Animal Crossing New Horizons Version 2.0, many players of the laid-back experience exclusive to Switch are wondering if new fish and bugs/insects have been added with the update.

Data miners fans of Animal Crossing have been going at it right after the update launched. So far, over 9000 new items have been found. Most of which are bromides of the new characters, with hundreds of different colors.

Several thousands of accessories and decorations have been added as well, but are there new bugs and fish?

Are there new bugs and fish among the additions of Animal Crossing: New Horizon 2.0?

Looking through the list of the 9000 items and new elements shared so far by data miners, it doesn’t seem like there are any new fish or bugs.

However, seeing the update launched right at the beginning of November, “new” fish, only available during November, can now be caught. We listed some of them from the north hemisphere below.

The Bitterfish found in rivers all day, and with a tiny shadow size, sold for 900. The Football fish found in the sea between 4 PM and 9 AM, with a medium-large shadow size, sold for 2500.

The Blue Marlin, found in the Pier all day, with a huge shadow size, sold for 10,000. The Tuna with the same characteristics but sold for 7000.

Lastly, we have the Blowfish, found in the Sea from 9 PM to 4 AM, with a medium to small shadow size, and sold for 5,000. Note that this isn’t the full list and there are a few more fish appearing starting November. But you get the idea, no actual new fish were added, and you probably already know about all of these. Seeing New Horizons has been released for over a year now and we’ve seen every month at least once.

When it comes to insects, we have the Damselfly found flying all day and sold for 500. The Mole Cricket found underground all day and sold for 500. And the Tarantula, found on the ground from 7 PM to 4 AM, sold for 8,000. These too aren’t “new” bu simply started appearing with November.
