The fisher (Martes Pennanti) is a small carnivorous mammal native to North America. It is a member of the Mustelid family and in the marten genus. Although it is called the "Fisher cat," it is not a feline. People have debated the reintroduction of fishers back to Washington state. Sables are also martens and live in Eastern Asia. The Aboriginal names for the fisher are Pekan, Paquam, Wejack, and Woolang.
