The Museum

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

"Seaweed can be over three feet long. When its spores attach to rocks, they take root and grow. Seaweed is naturally brown but turns to the dark-green color we associate it with when cooked. It tends to spoil easily when picked, so various preservation methods have been developed as a necessity. Such methods of preservation are sprinkling ash and drying it out, or boiling it and adding salt."


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

"I got some seaweed! I just couldn't kelp myself!"
