The Museum

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

"Red snappers are gregarious fish that often form schools close to reefs and shipwrecks. They are a prized food fish, but because of demand, other species are often served as "red snapper". They usually live up to 50 years. The oldest recorded red snapper was thought to be 57."


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

"I caught a red snapper! I just snapped it up!"
