Each species of salmon has its own characteristics and subtle taste. At some point you should try to sample each species to find the ones that you prefer.
If you have never tried wild salmon before, you may want to start with Sockeye. Many people prefer Sockeye because of its dark red color and its high oil content. (The oil keeps the fish moist throughout the cooking process and adds flavor.) Most Sockeye will be between five and seven pounds. This will yield between three and four pounds of fillet, after cleaning.
