Sea Floor Animals &Plants

This is a list of fish and items you can get by diving while swimming. They are seen as small shadows on the water and disappear after a while if you don't dive down. You can dive for these by borrowing a wetsuit on the island or in your own town after purchasing a wetsuit from the island shop.
