As you wear your Wet Suit and dive into the ocean to catch sea-dwelling critters around your deserted island home, you may want to know what the Animal Crossing: New Horizons sea creature prices are.

Once a sea creature 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 sea creatures 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 sea creature in the game, but, given the ever-changing seasons, it is not exhaustive nor complete just yet.

If you have caught a sea creature 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 sea creatures, we’ll make sure that this list of sea creature prices is kept up-to-date over time.
