I like all types of salmon. As long as it isn't farm raised.

I can tell you exactly what went wrong here.

The fish wasn't flash frozen very soon after it was caught.

If it had been, the difference would have been much less noticeable.

Flash freezing preserves a fish at almost the same level of freshness it's at at the time of processing. If it's been allowed to detiorate, it won't really be fresh.

I've had flash frozen fish that is just as good as fresh, but it's got to be handled properly.

Here's a good recipe: saute apples and steam the fish over them.

It is good; the most important thing to remember when you prepare salmon is to not try to mix too many flavors with it. One cook I knew did dreadful things to it with varying types of produce.

No I don't go and destroy the taste of it. I have seen that happen with other fish also.

I think you would enjoy this man's books; they are worth reading for the prose alone, and so inspirational:

Marketing has a lot to do with the copper river hype. It's good stuff; but our SE sockeye is just as good.
How fast they deteriorate in fresh water depends on how far they have to swim (basically how much oil they have on board).

Hence in Southeastern, where most salmon are going only a very short distance in fresh water, they are very quickly unedible once they enter fresh water.

Another example, and one that I used to get all kinds of laughs out of, is that king salmon that spawn in small tributary rivers do not deteriorate greatly until they get to their own particular river. One effect is that a king salmon that enters the Yukon can swim hundreds of miles up the Yukon, enter the Tanana River and go another significant number of miles to the Salcha River... and within 2 miles of entering the Salcha River that fish isn't good enough to make dog food out of! But people go to the mouth of the Salcha River and catch them, and not knowing what they have, they smoke them. And they don't understand when told that Kings are way better than Reds. But danged... a canned Red salmon would be far superior to a spawned out King caught in the Salcha River!
