There are five species of the salmon: chinook (known as King Salmon and is the largest of the 5 species), sockeye (red salmon), coho, chum (dog salmon), pink salmon (or humpback).
Salmon is such a great delicacy that somewhere in the world someone is eating fermented salmon heads!
Would I eat it?: Yes! I am not a fish lover, but I do indulge in salmon (and tuna) once in a while. How about you? Do you enjoy salmon?
