Here’s what fish and bugs are leaving in Animal Crossing: New Horizons in January

As 2020 draws to a close and the Christmas celebrations wind down in Animal Crossing: New Horizons for Nintendo Switch, it’s almost time for some bugs and fish to depart from your respective islands. Thanks to Polygon, they’ve collated a list of what’s leaving in January and the lists are split between the northern and southern hemispheres. Remember, some won’t be returning for nearly a whole year so make sure to spend some time catching what you need (while eating those festive leftovers) while you still can.

Check out the lists below:
