The Museum

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

"Bluegills have spikes on their dorsal fins o help protect them from enemies and harm. Their offspring actually have a fairly high survival rate when compared to other fish. The males chase away the females and take over protecting the eggs and babies in the nest. Although bluegills are small, they are actually related quite closely to black bass."


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

"I caught a bluegill! There's a lot in this ville!"
