"Reckon there's salmon, or is it too early in the season? Accio Salmon!"
—Ted Tonks[src]

Salmon refers to multiple species of fish native to the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. They are also commercially farmed throughout the world.[2]

A salmon is one possible corporeal form of the Patronus Charm.[3]

History

Ghosts can almost taste rotten food, and as such, stinking salmon was a dish served at Deathday Parties.[4][5]

Salmon was served during the final meal at 4 Privet Drive with Aunt Marge during the summer holidays of 1993.[6]

In 1997, Ted Tonks caught some salmon with a Summoning Charm while he, Dirk Cresswell, Dean Thomas, Griphook, and Gornuk were on the run from Snatchers.[7]

Salmon is also one of the Known Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans flavours.[8]
