The Museum

The Barred Knifejaw can be donated to the museum. Upon doing so, the following text is given by Blathers:

"Barred knifejaws stand out thanks to the seven stripes adorning their white bodies. Their natural curiosity and strong pull make them a popular target of anglers, but they're no easy catch. They have strong teeth that allow them to make short work of sea creatures with tough shells. This means that both urchins and mollusks need to be careful, lest they become meals for these fish."


Upon catching the fish, the player will say the following:

"I caught a barred knifejaw! I'll have to use it to cut veggies!"
