The Museum

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

"Oysters are sometimes referred to as "the milk of the sea" because of their high nutritional value. Young oysters come from eggs, attach themselves to hard places in the ocean, and then grow. They can change gender, allowing them to reproduce regardless of their neighbors' genders."


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

"I got an oyster! He's been a bit too shellfish."
