The Museum

The Cherry Salmon can be donated to the museum. Upon doing so, the following text is given by Blathers:

"The spotted pattern on cherry salmon serves as camouflage and is rather common in all salmon. Most cherry salmon spend their lives in rivers, but some do migrate to the ocean to fully mature. They are popular with anglers because of their well-balanced physique and beautiful patterns. Plus, their nervous nature makes them a good challenge to catch, which just adds to the fun."


Upon catching the fish, the player will say the following:

"I caught a cherry salmon! Now for a cherry-salmon pie!"
