The Museum

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

"Dace can live in cloudier, murkier water than most but are easy to see as their numbers are so plentiful. They are related to carp, and some species of face live in the ocean as well as rivers and streams. During mating season, the bellies of the males develop an orange stripe to indicate their intent to mate."


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

"I caught a dace! Wrong place, Mr. Dace!"
