Upon donation or selecting "Tell me more about this!", Blathers the curator will say:

"The golden trouts is a beautifully colored fish that can only live in very clean waters. They are difficult to come across since they are found only in high mountain streams. As a side note, I find it much easier to appreciate fish that aren't such prima donnas about everything."

Main article: Golden trout on Wikipedia

The golden trout is native to several rivers in California. These small fish are famed for their beautiful bright yellow and red bodies. Sadly they are now endangered in their native range due to years of over-fishing and introduced trout species, including the rainbow trout which it hybridizes with.
