The Barbel Steed is found in the river.
The Barbel Steed can be donated to the museum. Upon doing so, the following text is given by Blathers:
"Barbel steeds have a longer distance between their eyes and mouths than carp do. This makes them look almost like they're averting their eyes downward in embarrassment. Their whiskers aren't as long as carp whiskers, so the resemblance is still only minor. They are full of bones, but they're edible nonetheless and actually taste similar to flounder."
Upon catching the fish, the player will say the following:
"I caught a barbel steed! It just needs a barbel saddle!"
