For the Northern Hemisphere, you will be able to catch an Arapaima from June to September.
As for the Southern Hemisphere, Arapaimas will appear from December to March. The timeline is similar to Arowanas.

You should be able to find them on your own island but if you can’t, try going to a mystery island and you might be luckier.
