ACNH fish, bugs, and sea creatures for August 2020

ACNH fish, bugs, and sea creatures for August 2020

Just like all of the previous months, Animal Crossing on the Switch is about to change around the monthly spawn roster for fish, bugs, and sea creatures. And players can expect to find plenty of new and exciting lifeforms to catch, and either keep or sell for Bells.

Each month the random spawns of fish, bugs, and sea creatures will change in the game. Nintendo does this regularly to keep the game fresh and exciting for long-term players. You can, of course, get around this by time-traveling, if you don’t mind cheating.

Each day the potential spawns will change on your islands. Check out the lists below to find out what spawns happen at what times, and what hemispheres they take place in. You can also look at the prices listed in the tables to see how much each catch sells for.
