New Fish Arriving in July in Animal Crossing New Horizons

Here are the five fish coming to ACNH in July for Northern Hemisphere players.

  • Sweetfish: all-day, rivers
  • Pufferfish: all-day, sea
  • Napoleonfish: 4 am – 9 pm, sea
  • Ocean Sunfish: 4 am – 9 pm, sea
  • Blue Marlin: all-day, pier

Sweetfish

The Sweetfish is a medium-size shadow fish that you can find in rivers during July. It’s available all day long, and there are no special requirements for catching it. It’s available from July through September. The only other fish that competes with this one is the Tilapia.

Pufferfish

The Pufferfish is a medium-size shadow fish that you can find in the ocean during July. It’s available all day long, and it’s a relatively common fish. You can catch this one from July through September. There are a few other fish of the same size, so be patient, and you will find one.

Napoleonfish

Napoleonfish are large-size shadow fish that you can find in the ocean. It’s available from 4 am to 9 pm during July and August. One thing to note is your controller will vibrate when you hook one of these. You’re likely going to catch a lot of Sea Bass before you find one of these.

Ocean Sunfish

Ocean Sunfish are large-size shadow finned fish that you can find in the ocean during July. Similar to the Napoleonfish, they are available from 4 am to 9 pm from July through September. Look out for the fin, and it will be easier for you to identify than most other fish.

Blue Marlin

The Blue Marlin is a fish you can find out on the piers all day long. You can catch one on your island, or off the docks on deserted islands. This fish is available from January through April, July through September, and November through December. You may have already caught one of these, but in case you haven’t, be prepared to capture hundreds of Sea Bass before finding one.

July also introduces twenty-one new bugs to ACNH. Check out our list of new bugs coming in July to get the full details. In case you are wondering what these fish sell for, check out our Animal Crossing New Horizons fish prices list.
