Animal Crossing New Horizons July Bugs and Fish Guide Cover

Welcome to July and another Animal Crossing: New Horizons Bugs and Fish Guide. Things are continuing to heat up in the Northern Hemisphere and cool down in the South. And with that comes some radical changes to the catchable critters that are going to be around this month. As well as the rest of the season. With one half of the world about to get stupidly busy and the other half, well, you’ll soon see.

So as we all prepare for some seasonal fun (and desperately waiting on Nintendo to announce a new update) let’s take a look to see what is going on this month. Starting off with our good friends in the Northern Hemisphere.

It goes without saying that July is a big month when it comes to collectible bugs. Soon, your islands will come alive to the sights and sounds of Beetlemania. Many of them however are late night catches, with some being rather rare too. So be sure to have a nice variety of trees on your islands to maximise your chances in capturing the ones you need. 

FISH ARRIVING THIS MONTH

  Location Time of Day Shadow Size Value
Blue Marlin Pier All Day Huge 10000

It’s less active on the Fish front in the Northern Hemisphere this month. However, we are still very much in shark season. Be sure to keep an eye out for shadows with fins sticking out of the water.

DEEP-SEA CREATURES ARRIVING THIS MONTH

  Movement Pattern Time of Day Shadow Size Value
Giant Isopod Very Fast 9am – 4pm & 9pm – 4am Medium 12000
Horseshoe Crab Medium 9pm – 4am Medium 2500
Moon Jellyfish Very Slow All Day Small 600

DEEP-SEA CREATURES LEAVING AFTER THIS MONTH

  Movement Pattern Time of Day Shadow Size Value
Seaweed Stationary All Day Large 600

 

As with Fish, there isn’t much change on the Deep-Sea Creature situation; only three new arrivals and one leaver. And the leaver is around all day and stationary so you won’t struggle finding it. However, two of the new arrivals aren’t active till late at night with one being very fast at that. If you need advice on how to catch fast Deep-Sea Creatures, see the following guide for a neat tip.

SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE

No. Your eyes are not deceiving you, dear reader. This month in the Southern Hemisphere, there are no new Bugs or Fish arriving or leaving. Which should help to give you some time to catch any that you might have missed from last month. It will also give you time to practice your Snowman making skills. The only area that is seeing any changes is the Deep-Sea Creatures section, which sees the following leaving after this month.

DEEP-SEA CREATURES LEAVING AFTER THIS MONTH

  Movement Pattern Time of Day Shadow Size Value
Abalone Medium Speed 4pm – 9am Medium 2000
Lobster Fast All day Large 4500
