Some fish can only be caught in very specific places on your island in Animal Crossing New Horizons. The Tuna for example, is only available in a very small slither of the ocean surrounding your island and as such, can be quite tricky to catch. To help you catch a Tuna, we've put together this guide. It'll show you exactly where to go on your island, and give you some info on when they can be caught, as well as how much you'll get for selling them.

How to Catch a Tuna in Animal Crossing New Horizons
To catch a Tuna in Animal Crossing New Horizons you will need to head to one of the piers on your island's beaches. We recommend stocking up on fish bait, and throwing it off the end of the pier into the water. You can catch Tuna at any time of the day between the months of November and April.

Tuna Sell Price
If you sell a Tuna to the Nooks, you'll get 7000 Bells. If you choose to save it until CJ is on your island however (more on CJ here), you'll get 10,500 Bells. This makes Tuna one of the most valuable fish in the game at the moment.
We've been busy plugging away on a bunch more Animal Crossing New Horizons guides. You can find close to 100 guides right here on USG, and if you head to our AC: New Horizons Walkthrough you'll see them all in one handy place. From guides on the different kinds of buildings, to detailed breakdowns of how to catch specific bugs and fish, we've got you covered.
Tuna Shadow Size
Tuna will only appear as the largest shadow size in the game. Do not waste your time on anything less than huge, as it will not be the fish you are looking for.
