Answer:

A semicolon is used to connect two closely related, independent clauses (those containing both a subject and a verb) that are considered of equal importance. Semicolons are stronger in separating thoughts than a comma but are not as strong as a period. Example: I usually don't eat fish; however, the salmon you made was delicious.
