Animal Crossing New Horizons Fish Prices: How Much Your Catches Are Worth

Animal Crossing New Horizons Fish Prices Screenshot

As you continue to use your trusty Fishing Rod to catch fish that swim in the ocean around your deserted island home, you may start to wonder what the fish prices are for these sea-dwelling creatures in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

Once a fish has been listed in your Critterpedia and donated to Blathers for safekeeping in the Museum’s Aquarium, the duplicates that you catch can become a reliable source for you to earn more Bells to build up your Bank of Nook account.

It’s important to remember to sell your fish directly to Timmy or Tommy in Nook’s Cranny, as you will always be rewarded with more Bells for your efforts this way.

You can use the Drop-off Box that’s located outside the shop to sell them when it is closed, but anything that you place inside it will be bought at 80 percent of their shop trade-in value due to handling fees. The twins are related to Tom Nook, after all.

We have started to compile a list of how many Bells you will receive when selling each fish in the game, but, given the ever-changing seasons, it is not exhaustive nor complete just yet.

If you have caught a fish that’s missing from our list or perhaps see a price that doesn’t match up with what Timmy or Tommy gave you for it, please let us know! As we continue to catch new fish, we’ll make sure that this list of fish prices is kept up-to-date over time.
