All New September Fish And Bugs In Animal Crossing: New Horizons

It’s September in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and like with any new month, that means there are some new fish, bugs, and sea creatures to catch. In this guide, we’ll detail every new critter for both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres; note that this is only the new arrivals for the month and not every fish, bug, and sea creature you can catch this month.

For a more comprehensive list of every creature in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, we have a full list of all 80 fish to catch, including shadow sizes, and a list of all 80 bugs to catch, with tips on tracking down the handful of rare ones. September also marks the shift to a new season–fall for Northern Hemisphere players and spring for those in the Southern Hemisphere–which means some key seasonal changes as well. Those in the North can look forward to a variety of fall seasonal DIYs and materials, while those in the South can get some bamboo recipes.

Here are all the new fish, bugs, and sea creatures you can catch in Animal Crossing: New Horizons in September. We’ve sorted them by bells so you know what to focus on if you’re waiting for Flick or C.J. to visit, but if you’re a completionist, you’ll want to catch them all so you can donate to your museum! Keep in mind that the only way to get the coveted golden fishing rod and net DIYs is to complete your Critterpedia.
