The Museum

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

"Olive flounders are rather flexible whitefish that have both eyes on the left side of their body. They can reach three feet in length and are commonly mistaken for dabs, a close relative. When young, they have an eye on each side, but as they age, their right eye migrates to their left side. These carnivorous fish can change color to camouflage themselves on the seabed as they wait for prey."


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

"I caught a dab... Huh? Just kidding! It's an olive flounder! Make up your mind, fishy!"
