Salmon is commonly prized for its health benefits; It is a fatty fish that is loaded with Omega-3 fatty acids, which most people don’t get enough of.
Wild salmon is just as it says – caught in the wild, in its natural environment… oceans, rivers and lakes.
The colouration of young Atlantic salmon does not resemble the adult stage. While they live in fresh water, they have blue and red spots. At maturity, they take on a silver-blue sheen.
The easiest way of identifying them as an adult is by the black spots predominantly above the lateral line, though the caudal fin is usually unspotted. When they reproduce, males take on a slight green or red colouration.
The salmon has a fusiform body, and well-developed teeth. All fins, save the adipose, are bordered with black.
After two years at sea, the fish average 71 to 76 cm (28 to 30 in) in length and 3.6 to 5.4 kg (7.9 to 11.9 lb) in weight.
