"I caught a herabuna! It's so flat!" —Animal Forest

The herabuna is a fish that only appears in Animal Forest and Animal Forest+. It can be found in the River Pool at any time of the day and year, but its peak months are March, June, and August to September. In the English-translated Animal Crossing and the subsequent Japanese Animal Forest e+, it is replaced by the brook trout.

The herabuna is a "medium" (size 3) fish, a size larger than the crucian carp but the same as the dace.
