The Dab is found in the ocean.
The Dab can be donated to the museum. Upon doing so, the following text is given by Blathers:
"Dabs generally have both eyes on the right side of their body, though there are some exceptions. Both types of dabs begin in infancy with an eye on each side of their body. As dabs grow, the eye on the left migrates to the right, though sometimes it doesn't move at all. Dabs dig in the sand to hide, which allows their eyes to stick up a bit to watch for danger. Because they live off of bugs and small creatures, their mouths are small, containing narrow, dull teeth."
Upon catching the fish, the player will say the following:
"I caught a dab! I'm not just dabbling anymore!"
