King Salmon in the U.P.

King SalmonAs mentioned in last week’s Beaumier Center blog post, the Center has many types of items in its collection. We have a number of stuffed and mounted animals that represent the fauna of the Upper Peninsula. Our most recent addition of this type is a King Salmon that was caught by Communications and Performance Studies Professor Dwight Brady off the lower harbor in Marquette on Oct. 10, 2011. It weighed 18.5 lbs. It is currently on display in the Superior  Dome along with a bear, moose and other fish.
