The Museum

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

"These fish are relatives of sea bass, though they're preyed on by other, larger fish, such as black bass. Their defining features are their large, prickly dorsal fins and gray stripes on pale-yellow bodies. Ice fishing on frozen lakes is a very popular way to catch them in their native United States and Canada. They are often fried before being eaten, which makes them a simple but tasty meal."


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

"I caught a yellow perch! I wonder if birds usually stand on it!"
