The Museum

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

"Tuna can reach almost 10 feet in length and weigh over 800 pounds, which is huge in the fish world. Combining this great size with their good flavor makes them literally the biggest catch for most anglers. Tuna can't breathe when they aren't moving, so their entire lives revolve around constantly swimming. To sleep, they merely slow down. This ability to swim while sleeping is a huge advantage. They're also rather fast, capable of beating both sets of fins so hard they reach speeds of 50 mph."


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

"I caught a tuna! And now it's stuck in my head!"
