It’s your first week at your new job with the aquarium, and your boss wants you to find a Prehistoric Perch so you may bring it back and, hopefully, save the aquarium. But, being both a novice fisherman and new to the island, you’ll have to not only find where the Prehistoric Perch hangs out, but also work your way through the other fishin’ holes to get there. Which means catching lots of fish!

Along with saving the aquarium and your job, your objectives including catching a certain amount of fish and making enough money to buy better equipment, in the expectations of eventually finding and catching the elusive Prehistoric Perch.
