The world of Animal Crossing: New Horizons has a market that players have to adhere to if they want to maximize their profits.
One way plenty of players rely on to earn some bells is by fishing. There are numerous types of fish in New Horizons and each of them has their own price they go for.
Many players are aware of this already, but there’s actually a difference between fishing in the river versus casting your line in the ocean. With different fish available in different spots, it can be tough to know what the best bang for your buck is.
With inventory space limited, players will want to maximize their trips back to Nook’s Cranny to sell their supply of fish, and it can be a bummer to head there with a pocket full of worthless sea critters.
To avoid that, we’ve rounded up all of the fish in the game and ranked them in order of their price from high to low. Keep in mind that a lot of fish you’ll come across don’t have much in terms of value, so while you can sell them, it might be better off dropping them to get something better.
Without further ado, let’s take a look at all of the fish in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, where to get them, and what they’ll sell for.
