Animal Crossing games have a very realistic rotation in terms of the presence of certain flora and fauna in the game. Most of the gameplay elements in Animal Crossing are seasonal, which means that they are available only during certain times of the year.
As the month of July has just begun, a lot of new sea creatures will be gradually arriving in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and some other creatures will be taking their leave.
For those with an inclination towards catching sea creatures, July will be a pretty ripe time, as they will get to catch some exquisite specimen and make some good money.
The following is a list of all the sea species that players can catch in July (particularly with the fishing tournament approaching):
Sea Grapes: Sea Grapes are a rather easy catch that may fetch 900 Bells if sold. They are immobile and available all day.
Sea Star: These are also stationary, and catching one will get you 500 Bells if you sell it. Sea Stars, like Sea Grapes, are available throughout the day. Urchin of the Sea: This form of the Sea Urchin is only available from 4 p.m. to 9 a.m., and it moves at a normal pace, unlike the Sea Urchin. These are worth 2000 Bells if caught. Marine Anemone: This motionless sea creature is also available throughout the day and can be sold for 500 Bells. Jellyfish of the Moon: These are one of Animal Crossing: New Horizons’ most stunning sea species, and they’re available all day. These are worth 600 Bells if caught. Slug of the Sea: Sea Slugs are small and hard to spot, thus they may not be a profitable catch in and of themselves. They can, however, fetch a whopping 600 Bells if caught. The Pearl Oyster is something that players should try to catch. Pearl oysters are one of the fastest with a medium shadow size.
If caught, these can fetch 2800 Bells.Mussel: Yet another easy and profitable catch, this immobile sea creature can fetch 1500 Bells.
