The Sims 3 Island Paradise - Scuba Diving Skill
Collectibles Guide: Sea Shells and Bottom-Dwelling Fish
|Scuba Diving||Resorts||Mermaids||Discovering Islands||Map Fragments & Bottles||Lifeguard|
The Sims 3 Island Paradise features new collectible sea shells and sea life that can be found in a number of ways. This guide will show you all new collectibles so you can find them all, list their values and rarities so you can tell how how they are to find.
Sea Shells can be found on the ocean floor and while snorkeling. You may also find them along the beach, but they do not contribute to Scuba Diving skill challenges when picked up that way. Snorkeling is the best way to grab these, and your Sim will get much better at picking them up and raising their sale value if you collect 50 shells and Snorkel for 40 hours to complete 2 challenges.
|Name||Rarity||Min Value||Max Value|
|Ancient Fish Fossil||Rare||650||700|
|Shark Tooth||Extraordinarily Unusual||1500||2000|
Fishing - Sea Life
As your Sim is swimming in Dive Spots, keep an eye out for fish floating in the water and crawling along the bottom. You will also see regular fish from the Fish List, some of which are valuable and worth picking up. Collecting these fish by picking them up does not raise the Fishing nor scuba diving skill, and they do not use bait.

and i found straight away as soon as went underwater a octopus and this was my first time diving. I sold it for 400 simoleons.
Can you use the new fish as fertilizer?
My Sim was looking for an hours trying to find shell "Shark Tooth". One time, shark attack him, my Sim won and Shark Tooth shell appear in his inventory. I suppose this is the only way to require this collectible. Also, I'm trying to find Seahorse. My Sim spend days under water, in different spots and nothing. I'm thinking about using buydebug cheat, but I don't like to solve problems with codes. Maybe someone has similar problem?
The Shark tooth one was found by my Sim laying in one of the dive spots so it's possible to get it through the spawner but again it's rare so it could take days or weeks to get it.
