The Museum

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

"Crucian carp are fairly easy fish for beginners to catch, but they're also popular with veteran anglers. They are related to koi and can live up to 15 years, making them a great fish to keep in a pond. Male offspring are seldom born, so females significantly outnumber males, making populations suffer. Luckily, females reproduce with males of some other species, so the problem is relatively temporary."


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

"I caught a crucian carp! What a crucial catch!"
