Catching marine fish has always been an indispensable part of Animal Crossing, and this situation will not change in 2021, because there will be 5 new fish in January and summer is a time full of saltiness. In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, as in previous games, players can fish in any waters on or around the island. Thanks to the real-time game mechanics, the player's weather experience at home matches the experience of their characters and villagers in the game. This means that the season will change in real-time, and players can find new fish every month. Players can add new fish to the player's Critterpedia and donate them to the museum to complete the entire fish gallery. The copied fish can be used as decoration or sold to get additional ringtones at the beginning of the new year.
As winter in the northern hemisphere has just begun, and summer in the southern hemisphere is approaching, starting from January 1, 2021, players are expected to find only a few new fish. No new fish arrived in the northern hemisphere this month, and no fish will leave at the end of January. In January, players in the southern hemisphere will find 5 new fish out of the 80 fish in the game but will lose one at the end of the month. There are a total of 80 fish in the game. Among them, 31 in the northern hemisphere and 58 in the southern hemisphere were caught in January.
Generally, players need to make sure that they have a high-quality fishing rod, which can be purchased or crafted, and they may want to make some bait. Almost all the fish that came to the Southern Hemisphere in January swam into the sea. Throwing bait in will increase the number of organisms. Although this does not guarantee anything, it can increase the player's chances of catching two of the rarest and most valuable fish in New Horizons: Napoleon and Blue Marlin.
Once players donate their first new fish to the Blathers in the museum, they can sell the replica. The fish can be sold to Timmy and Tommy in Nook's Cranny, and can also be sold to him whenever CJ appears on the island. For each fish, he will pay 30% more than Nook's Cranny players. Players from both hemispheres can also see him participating in the upcoming fishing tournament on January 9.
The 5 new fish that came to the Southern Hemisphere in January this year are:
Sweetfish: quite common; found in the river; available throughout the day; small batches of shade size; each worth 900 bells.
Napoleon fish: scarce; found in the sea; 4 am to 9 pm; huge shadow size; each bell is worth 10,000.
Pufferfish: quite common; found in the sea; available throughout the day; small batches of shade size; each piece worth 250 bells.
Blue marlin: scarce; found in the sea, only offshore docks; available all day long; huge shadow size; each bell is worth 10,000.
Ocean sunfish: rare; found in the sea; 4 am to 9 pm; huge shadow with fins; each piece is worth 4000 minutes.
At the end of January, players in the southern hemisphere will not be able to find Tadpoles, so any player who still needs to collect tadpoles should plan to find one before the end of the month.
