Luckily, for players in the Northern Hemisphere, a handful of critters will leave after April 30. They won’t witness as many departures as the other half. On the other hand, a ton of critters will bid adieu to the Southern Hemisphere islands. Players here will observe a variety of bugs, fish, and deep-sea creatures taking their leave.

Since some of these critters will not return for quite some time, it’s always a good idea to catch them before they disappear. To help you track the ones you need, we have listed all the bugs, fish, and deep-sea creatures departing after April for both hemispheres below.

It’s worth mentioning that donating the critters you catch to the Museum will help you complete their respective exhibits. Besides, they also contribute to filling out your NookPhone’s Critterpedia for unlocking golden tools. Keep your nets, fishing rods, and diving gear handy!
