To catch an Ocean Sunfish in Animal Crossing: New Horizons you’ll need to grab a net and head to the waters edge during the summer months of July - September in the northern hemisphere (January - March in the southern hemisphere). Here are the key details you need to know about the Animal Crossing: New Horizons Ocean Sunfish:

  • When: 4am - 9pm, July - September
  • Where: Sea
  • Shadow Size: Massive with dorsal fin
  • Value: 4,000 Bells

More a mighty blob of the waves than a titan, the Ocean sunfish appears only during the summer months. Fitting its name, you’ll only be able to catch this big fish during the day, from 4am to 9pm. It’ll appear as a massive shadow with a dorsal fin. You might expect a shark when pulling this fella out, which makes his enormous size quite the surprise.

You can sell the Ocean Sunfish to Timmy and Tommy at Nook’s Cranny for 4,000 bells, or hold onto it until CJ arrives to make a tidy profit of 6,000 Bells instead. Not quite as good aas the other summer sharks, but a nice bell bounce all the same.
