Do Sea Creatures Have Seasonality?

In previous Animal Crossing titles, the sea creatures you were able to catch changed over time. It's highly likely that in ACNH, the sea creatures you can catch will change according to which hemisphere you are living in as well.

How To Catch Sea Creatures

Catch Sea Creatures By Diving


You can catch sea creatures by diving underwater. You can see the shadow of sea creatures so perhaps you'll be able to identify their exact species just by looking?

You Need The Wet Suit To Dive


In order to start diving, you'll need to purchase a Wet Suit. The Wetsuit can be purchased at Nook's Cranny after you've updated to Ver. 1.3.0. You can also wear the Snorkel Mask while gathering sea creatures too!
