Guide: Bugs And Fish In Animal Crossing New Horizons That Are Leaving After March

Like the previous games, the bugs and fish available to catch in Animal Crossing: New Horizons change depending on the time of year, some of them disappearing for months at a time before becoming available again

With this in mind, players who are looking to complete their museum collection my want to take note of the following bugs and fish which will be rotating out after March is over. This list of bugs and fish is different depending on whether your island is set to Northern Hemisphere or Southern Hemisphere, so be sure to look at the correct list.
