The Horse Mackerel is found in the ocean.
The Horse Mackerel can be donated to the museum. Upon doing so, the following text is given by Blathers:
"With their appealing flavor, horse mackerel have long been a cheap and common food source. However, in certain regions, they have actually been branded as something of a luxury dish. They have tough scales on both sides of their bodies that must be removed before preparing. Though small, they are formidable carnivores. Since they go after bait, they are popular with fishers."
Upon catching the fish, the player will say the following:
"I caught a horse mackerel! Holy mackerel!"
