All fish leaving at the end of May - Animal Crossing: New Horizons

You've only got a few weeks left to catch these fish before they leave Animal Crossing: New Horizons at the end of May.

2

 With almost 80 different fish to catch in the Critterpedia, there are more than enough creatures in the sea and rivers of Animal Crossing: New Horizons to keep you busy. If you’re trying to fill out your collection, though, you’re going to need to catch the fish while they’re available. Because the types of fish can change from month to month, we’ve put together this handy guide to all the fish leaving at the end of May to help you home in on the right targets.

All fish leaving at the end of May

We’ve already shown you all the bugs leaving at the end of May, but now it’s time to talk about the rest of the critters available to catch in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Like our bug guide, we’ve broken down the fish leaving into two groups – the northern and southern hemisphere. All of these fish will return at a later date, and you can learn more about that in our massive guide to all the fish in New Horizons.
