Donating to the museum[edit]

As with all fish in the Animal Crossing series, the king salmon can be donated to the museum aquarium by talking to Blathers, who will follow up the donation with a small talk about it. In Animal Crossing: Wild World, it can be found in the top-most tank. In Animal Crossing: City Folk, it can be found in the middle-right tank.

In Wild World[edit]

Blathers will say this upon the donation:

"The king salmon will swim upstream to spawn, as most people know... What many DON'T know, however, is that it eats nothing while en route! As such, when king salmon begin their journey at the mouth of a river... They're all fatties! Think upon that the next time you eat an entire cake before working out, wot!"

In City Folk[edit]

Blathers will say the following upon the donation:

"...Hoo, quite impressive! This one put up quite a fight, I should think? The regal king salmon dwarfs lesser salmon with an overall length of up to 60 inches (130 centimeters), eh wot? Its size makes catching it with a net difficult, so most people rely on a fishing rod to catch the king!"

In New Leaf[edit]

"King salmon grow to about twice the size of regular salmon, which really helps them embody the name. This size essentially makes them the actual kings of salmon, though they are also called chinook salmon. In some regions, they return to the river in spring or summer and live there until spawning in the fall. In rare cases, king salmons' meat will be white, but these are not as popular since pink is the standard."

In New Horizons[edit]

Blathers will say the following upon donation:

"The king salmon didn't get its name for nothing. This stately fish can weigh in at up to 130 pounds! It's clear why it's referred to as the king of salmon. I imagine even the mightiest net can catch no more than a few at a time. I must say it's a miracle to me that you didn't get dragged out to sea by this one, wot!"

Further information[edit]

The real-life King Salmon

This fish, also known as Chinook Salmon is very large, often growing to be over 34 kg (75 lbs). They are very beautiful and are known to be very good fighters when fishing. Once in a while they grow to be over 43 kg (95 lbs) and 1.8 m (6 ft), but the majority are 60–90 cm (2–3 ft) and 14 kg to 18 kg (30 to 40 lbs). They are native to the Pacific coast from Alaska to California, and Argentina to Chile. They are also found in great numbers in Israel, the Great Lakes, along with the Rocky Mountains, notably Lake Michigan where the record is 20 kg (45 lbs) from Illinois.
