The Atlantic Salmon Food Value

by Fly Fisherman

FOOD VALUE.—The food value of the Atlantic salmon ranks very high, although they lose much of their firmness and flavor if not caught during the early spawning migration. Maine formerly produced several hundred thousand pounds of salmon, but in recent years the commercial fishing has dwindled to a mere shadow of the former figures. And the same is true in Canada, where the present principal fisheries are in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, the Newfoundland waters, and southern Labrador.
