from the family Mustilidae.
(Martes pennanti) is a weasel native to North America. It is a member of the mustelid family, commonly referred to as the weasel family. The Fisher
is closely related to but larger than the American Marten (Martes americana). The Fisher
is a forest-dwelling creature whose range covers much of the boreal forest in Canada to the northern fringes of the United States. Names derived from aboriginal languages include pekan, pequam, and wejack. It is also sometimes referred to as a Fisher Cat
, although it is not a feline.
