The Museum

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

"These shrimp inhabit shallow areas of the sea and are nocturnal, hiding under sand during the day. By night, they go out and hunt shellfish before returning to the safety of their sand. Unlike other shrimp, they don't carry their eggs around with them in their abdomen. They are famous for being a tasty variety of shrimp and are perfect for tempura and sushi."


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

"I got a tiger prawn! I can sell it at a prawn shop!"
