A new month means new bugs and fish to catch in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. These charts will show you more than just what new creatures you can capture. We will also show you the price and general location of each type of fish or insect. 

Obtaining any new critters does not need to be stressful, as some will stay for longer than one month. Do check your Critterpedia to see what you have not given to Blathers to complete your Museum. A little hint your character gives in Animal Crossing is when they say, “Yes!” after the successful catch, which signals that you have caught a new addition to your collection.
