New Fish And Bugs To Catch In Animal Crossing: New Horizons (May 2020)

Animal Crossing: New Horizons has 160 creatures to catch on land, sea, and air, but they’re not all available at the same time. The availability of your island’s bugs and fish will come and go with the seasons. It’s May and that means new seasonal catches to donate to your museum, fill out your Critterpedia, and pad out your wallet with some extra bells. May also marks your last chance to catch fish and bugs that are going out of season in June. Seasonal fish and bugs are different depending on which hemisphere your island is in too, so we’ve listed both Northern and Southern Hemisphere arrivals below.

For a more comprehensive list of Animal Crossing’s critters, we have a full list of all 80 fish to catch, including what shadow sizes to look out for, and a list of the 80 bugs to catch, with tips on finding some of the rare ones.
