Animal Crossing New Horizons Deep-sea Creatures: Prices and Locations

Animal Crossing New Horizons Deep-sea Creatures Prices

A new Summer Update for Animal Crossing New Horizons introduces swimming, diving, and catching deep-sea creatures. Like bugs and fish, deep-sea creatures are catchable creatures. You can encounter them while swimming around in the sea. Also, deep-sea creatures have a price, shadow size, seasonality, and active hours. Here’s a complete list of Animal Crossing New Horizons deep-sea creatures prices and other information. 

Discovering a scallop during your diving adventures will help you encounter Pascal, a laid-back diver. Pascal can gift you mermaid themed DIY recipes, like the mermaid dresser, for different sea creatures. A list of deep-sea creatures is broken out by northern and southern hemispheres below. You can also find the exact months that each one is available. 

How to catch deep-sea creatures in Animal Crossing New Horizons

The ocean opens up in the new update, allowing players to swim and dive in the sea around their island. Throw on your wetsuit and lookout for deep-sea creature shadows in the water. Each creature has a different size shadow, and when you spot one, you can press A to dive down and capture it. 

Players can donate sea creatures to Blathers at the museum. Blathers will take your deep-sea creature donations and throw them into the aquarium exhibit. Like other critters, you can also sell them and receive some bells. Some creatures are more valuable than others!
