The Mitten Crab is found in the river.
The Mitten Crab can be donated to the museum. Upon doing so, the following text is given by Blathers:
"Officially known as the mitten crab, they also go by the name "shanghai crab." They are commonly used in Chinese dishes, which is how most people become familiar with them. Their breeding habits are the complete opposite of salmon in that they hatch in the ocean first. They then move up rivers when they reach adult size, returning to the ocean in order to spawn."
Upon catching the fish, the player will say the following:
"I caught a mitten crab! I'm smitten, crab!"
