In New Leaf

In New Leaf an information board in the aquarium will list information about this fish.

"Also called "northern shrimp," they have a life span of about 5 years, in which they are male for half. After that time, the shrimps change genders and become females, a rather unique feature of the species. The females are a popular sashimi dish, but they don't instantly have their characteristic sweetness. That sweetness actually comes out after they're left to sit for a day, making them a dish of patience."
