Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Nintendo’s simulation game which is the fifth in the series of Animal Crossing, is receiving an update to the creatures found on the islands in May 2022 with the fish in the game being reshuffled. Fishing plays quite a significant role in the Animal Crossing series, with players having the ability to gather items including fish, crafting items, and customizing the island to their taste.

Depending on the hemisphere of the players, the fish that can be found in the water bodies of the game will vary. Every player has their own island to modify in the Northern and Southern Hemispheres, and they will know the availability of the fish at their designated fishing spots—which is going to be shuffled in the May 2022 updates.

Fish Leaving the Islands in Animal Crossing: New Horizons in May 2022

With the arrival of the new fish, some will be leaving the islands too, and players will not be able to fish for them this season. However, they are sure to make a comeback later on in the year, so if any players are concerned about not having any of the fish, they need not worry.

These are the fish that will be leaving the island for the Northern Hemisphere players:

  • Golden Trout
  • Loach
  • Oarfish

The Southern Hemisphere players will be losing a lot more fish, which are listed below:

  • Barred Knifejaw
  • Char
  • Cherry Salmon
  • Golden Trout
  • Guppy
  • Mitten Crab
  • Neon Tetra
  • Ray
  • Sea Horse
  • Zebra Turkeyfish

Players love the fishing aspect of the game due to the relaxation it offers. They can also customize the fishing spot with the items that they have in order to feel more home at it.
