The Surgeonfish is found in the ocean.
The Surgeonfish can be donated to the museum. Upon doing so, the following text is given by Blathers:
"These tropical fish sport beautiful, yellow, traingular tails and elegant black lines on dazzling blue bodies. Personalitywise, the surgeonfish is actually rather laid back and timid. They seek out gaps in coral or between rocks for the greatest amount of protection while sleeping. "
Upon catching the fish, the player will say the following:
"I caught a surgeonfish! It was a simple operation, though!"
