The beginning of June is quickly approaching. With the start of a new month comes a change in the availability of fish and bugs in Animal Crossing. Here are the bugs and fish that are arriving and leaving in Animal Crossing: New Horizons for the month of June.

There are a greater number of fish and bugs arriving in the northern hemisphere, while there are a larger number of fish and bugs leaving the southern hemisphere. These shifts are based off of our real seasonal patterns- winter will soon arrive in the southern hemisphere and summer will soon be here in the northern hemisphere. Fish and bug availability therefore coincide with seasonal shifts.
