We've put together an Animal Crossing Fish Guide for January 2022, as new sea creatures and old will be making their way into the game next month. Here are the different types of fish players can catch in January 2022.

Fishing in Animal Crossing is one of the most popular activities in the game. Catching fish has several purposes in the game. Players can try and catch rare fish that can be sold at high prices or donated to the museum. Upon completing the fish donations, players can unlock an exclusive Golden Tool.

In Animal Crossing, the fish that can be caught change as the seasons do. For players who are trying to catch every type of fish in the game, regularly checking the game is important in order to find all of them.

There are no new sea creatures in the Northern Hemisphere this January, but the Mussel, Turban Shell and Spiny Lobster will leave at the end of this month. Now is the time for players to catch these creatures before they go away.

In addition to those creatures, the Chamerbered Nautillus, Firefly Squid and Lobster will be leaving the Southern Hemisphere at the end of December. However, in January 2022, three new creatures will be introduced into the game in the Southern Hemisphere: The Moon Jellyfish, Giant Isopod and Horseshoe Crab.

Here is where you can find these new creatures next year and how much they sell for:

  • Moon Jellyfish (600 Bells): This fish can be found at any time from January to March.
  • Giant Isopod (12,000 Bells): The Giant Isopod can be found from January to April between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., as well as 9 p.m. to 4 a.m.
  • Horseshoe Crab (2,500 Bells): The Horseshoe Crab can be found from January to March between 9 p.m. and 4 a.m.
