Any one of several species of fishes of the genus Salmo and allied genera. The common salmon (Salmo salar) of Northern Europe and Eastern North America, and the California salmon, or quinnat, are the most important species. They are extensively preserved for food. See Quinnat.

Wild salmon are naturally aggressive predators and inhabit cold-water streams, estuaries and the ocean areas. Native only to the Northern hemisphere salmon were once plentiful in various countries, though many of these wild populations are currently in serious decline. Varieties such as Pink, Coho, Sockeye and Chinook are salmonids whose wild populations are healthy. Atlantic salmon is the farmed salmonid of choice because of its hardiness and ease of farming. Salmon farming generally occurs in two phases: a freshwater phase and a marine phase. The eggs are hatched in land-based freshwater tanks, and then transferred to net pens in the ocean. It is this second stage of salmon farming that has the most damaging effects on nature. Salmon are a carnivorous species and depend on large amounts of protein in their diet, supplied to them through fishmeal, which is produced from wild-caught fish. Currently, efforts are underway to reduce farmed salmon's dependence on fishmeal as the primary source of protein.
A family of fishes that breed in rivers but live most of their adult lives at sea. Salmon have orange or pink flesh. For centuries, salmon have been important food fish to people of many nations. When they're ready to breed, most salmon find their way from the ocean back to the same stream where they were born.
One of the most popular finfish, rich, oily (it's beneficial oil). and highly flavorful. Many markets sell "Norwegian" salmon as if it were a distinct species
Salmon is the common name for several species of fish of the family Salmonidae. Several other fish in the family are called trout. Salmon live in both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, as well as the Great Lakes and other land locked lakes.
Salmon is a range of pale pinkish-orange to light orange colors, named after the color of salmon flesh. Actual salmon color varies from almost white to deep red, depending on their levels of the carotenoid astaxanthin due to how rich a diet of krill and shrimp the fish feeds on; the salmon raised on fish farms are given artificial coloring in their food.
