June Fish And Bugs To Catch In Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Check out all the new critters you can catch this month to fill out your museum's collection and your Critterpedia.


Animal Crossing: New Horizons has an extensive museum that you can fill with fossils, fish, bugs, and fine art. But unlike fossils that are available year-round, the various species of bugs and fish are seasonal. That means you can't catch them all at once, so you need to focus on the ones that are available in the current month--which is dependent on which hemisphere you chose at the beginning of the game.

It's June and that means there is a new wave of bugs and fish to catch. Check out the new additions below to see which specimens should be on your checklist this month. That will help you fill out the museum, your Critterpedia, and maybe most importantly, your wallet. For more details, check out the full list of all 80 fish to catch, along with all 80 bugs to catch. And for more June festivities, check out details on wedding season.
