How to catch Deep Sea Creatures in Animal Crossing New Horizons?


In August you will be finding a lot of these creatures swimming in the ocean. Players who are in the Northern Hemisphere will see Flatform. Each worth 700 bells and will spawn between 4 PM to 9 AM. So if you are fishing in the Northern Hemisphere then note down the time to catch the Flatworm.

The best catches are reserved for the month-end, but you can still try finding them out. Vampire Squid and Sea Pineapple are two deep-sea creatures that can be sold for 10,000 bells each.

Some creatures will be no longer available like Seaweed is leaving Northern Hemisphere at the end of July. The same goes for Southern Hemisphere. Venus’ Flower Basket, Sweet Shrimp, and Sea Pig are leaving the hemisphere forever. You can also try for Abalone and Lobster.


There is less info on what Deep-sea creature is coming in the Southern Hemisphere. Do not worry we will update this soon, you can focus on what is leaving the ocean. A lot relies on the type of season, for example as Summer has ended some creatures will be no longer available for fishing.

But new ones will be replaced and it is still to find what is coming in. Animal Crossing Wave 1 of Summer Update is almost over where a lot of creatures will be finding a new home. Thankfully new updates will bring in new ones and it will be exciting to wait for what is planned for Wave 2.
