The Museum

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

"Pearls are formed when mostly calcium carbonate and protein envelop foreign substances. Pearl oysters have numerous threadlike feet sticking out from their shell opening. These allow them to latch on to surrounding rocks and are actually surprisingly strong. Their adductor muscles are edible and are considered a delicious ingredient in some foods."


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

"I got a pearl oyster! Mostly I just wanted the pearl!"
