This is what Blathers will say when donating this fish:

[edit] Animal Crossing: Wild World

"I heard that Ocean Sunfish are editable... I've also heard that unless it's incredibly fresh, it tastes rather foul. As such, it's usually only eaten where it's caught!"

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

"...The ocean sunfish, it turns out, is related to the blowfish! Shocking, no? Absolutely mind-boggly! The resemblance is quite strong in its little mouth and round body... Seems rather blowfishy to me! ...There's something almost therapeutic about watching its slow, dull movements and vacant expression." It can be found in the tank at the back of the aquarium, with other ocean fish."

[edit] Trivia

  • The Ocean Sunfish is the least valuable out of the finned fish you can catch in the games.

[edit] Real Life

The Ocean Sunfish is the heaviest known bony fish, and live within tropical areas throughout the world. Just because they're large, doesn't mean they're feroucious, however. These creatures' diet is mainly Jellyfish, and have predators such as shark, Orcas, and Sea Lions.

Ocean Sunfish females can produce eggs at an amazingly high speed, but to do this both the males and females need to eat an immense amount; due to Jellyfish's lack of nutrients.

These creatures are also extremely thin, literally. They can be as long as they are tall, and therefore looking like a piece of paper.
