The Museum

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

"Scallops inhabit the cool ocean bed. They swim by rapidly clapping together their shell valves. The black does on scallops, known as wavy "strings," are actually their eyes. These eyes number over 80 but only really function as a means to sense light rather than motion. Often grilled and buttered, scallops have become a tasty seafood enjoyed all over the world."


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

"I got scallop! Hey, this isn't a potato at all!"
