If you’re like me then most of your time in Animal Crossing: New Horizons will be spent fishing. The gleefully simple minigame offers a bit of a challenge while also delivering a ton of Bells for use in building up and customizing your new island paradise. But if you’re really like me then you’ll start to get angry with all the fish cluttering your inventory. Which ones are worth selling? Definitely not the sea bass, but how about the rest? Here’s a simple Animal Crossing: New Horizons fish prices guide to break it down.

For me, anything below 500 Bells simply isn’t worth running back to Nook’s Cranny to drop off and sell. I’d rather keep fishing. And once you get the hang of how the silouette indicates what fish you’ll catch you can start skipping ones you are sure won’t be worth the effort. So hopefully this helps you be more productive in the game.
