Blathers will comment on your donation as follows:

"Hootie hoo... Why, you've managed to catch quite a massive fish, haven't you? Commendable! The pike, a relative of the salmon, can grow to...a whopping 52 inches or more in length! If I met one of these during a dip in the water, I do believe I'd launch into thrashing panic mode!"

It can be found in the middle-right tank in the Aquarium exhibit.

In New Leaf

Pikes are only found in cold water, so they cannot live in warmer parts of the world. They can grow over three feet long and as such are a very popular fish with anglers. Pike have a slightly protruding jaw and large mouths with sharp teeth, making them powerful predators. They use these teeth for tearing apart not only other fish but also birds and other aquatic creatures.

Pike Esox lucius Prague Vltava 2

A real pike

Esox lucius, or the Northern Pike (often abbreviated to simply Pike), sometimes known as the Jackfish, is a widespread and famous sport fish in the genus Esox, which contains many Pike species. They have a holarctic distribution, and are native to Europe, Russia and North America. In both continents anglers eagerly flock to locations to have a chance at landing larger fish. Pike have been known to live up to 30 years of age. Theirs diet consists mainly on small shoal fish, insects, amphibians, small mammals (like moles and mice), and even small waterfowl. They have also been known to be cannibalistic, sometimes feeding on smaller pike. Over-ambitious pike are not uncommon, and many die from choking.
