Can Massachusetts State Senator John Kerry tell the Difference between a Cod and a Salmon?

Ed Shahzade tweets in to tell us that John Kerry's Senate Site pictures a Salmon as the State Fish. He knows I like this kind of thing:

@stevegarfield Have a laugh- The senate webmaster has a salmon as our state fish http://kerry.senate.gov/mass/ Cape Codders rise up! :DTue Sep 07 11:54:29 via web




That's a Salmon on John Kerry's Site



Massachusetts State Fish
Cod



Maine State Fish
Salmon

I wouldn't have caught this.

I'm more familiar with Salmon at Whole Foods Market or on a plate.

Salmon at Legal C Bar

Would you have caught this?

Update:
The comments say that iStockphoto has this fish labeled incorrectly.

Postings to twitter are calling the fish a Trout.

  1. This drives me nuts. I've written in the past about a huge pet peeve of local restaurants that advertise locally caught fresh fish and then adorn the menus and decor of a Northeast Fish Shack with Tropical fish like Mahi Mahi. Ughhhh

    Here's my rant from last year-

    looks like the real culprit was istockphoto.com. the image tagged there as a 'cod' is a salmon!

  3. Kerry probably asked the chef on his yacht for a suggestion.
