Oarfish Animal Crossing New Horizons

Animal Crossing is played in real-time, which means that if it is March 21 in real life, it is March 21 in the game. This is important because resources are a form of currency and replenish or disappear depending on the day, time, or month. 

Fish are one of the most important resources players can farm in Animal Crossing. Fish vary in availability and price. Some fish are only available in winter months, while others are available at all hours of the day, at any time of the year.

Fish can be caught in ponds, rivers, or the sea and are spotted by their shadows. When you see a shadow, dip your rod in the water because you never know what you might find at the end of your rod.

The Oarfish is one of the rarer fish to catch because of its size and availability. It has the largest shadow, which means it is one of the biggest fish in the game. They are only caught in the sea and are available six months out of the year, from December to May.
