Humpies disintegrate rapidly once they hit fresh water, and ocean caught humpies are something a lot of Alaskans have never even had because no one sports fishes for them in the ocean.

Here's a picture of some dog treats I made out of salmon:

That is so awesome. Of course since they're shaped like Texas they are for little dogs, am I right?

Treats for Alaskan dogs...I would have used a biscuit cutter shaped like Alaska but I couldn't find one small enough. Found the cute little Texas one on E-Bay.

All his skin & coat problems are gone.....he loves the taste, never been healthier and 30 pounds lasts me 35 days.....equates out to about $1.25/day.
Our dog LOVES seafood. Since I love it, too, he likes to hang out with me just waiting for me to share.

Could you please tell me the name of that food? We've looked all over for seafood dog food. Sometimes we buy him cat food and he LOVES it!

Chum, (aka "keta") on the other hand, are truly unpalatable. We call them "dogs" not because they look like our furry friends but because they are a traditional meal and suitable only for your dogs.
Open water Chums can come out fairly good smoked. If you get a really fresh one (hardly can see the maroon stripes), they can be good grilled. They are best known for their roe, which are the largest. I agree that pinks are good smoked.

This is all very interesting! I can identify the various salmon species once they change color and shape, and from times they run. That's because I'm seeing them once they hit fresh water. Other than size, what are the differences in open ocean salmon? Are the difficult to differentiate when they're all silver?

No. Sockeye have a distinctive tail fin and a different coloring, pinks have a hump on their backs, chums look like dogs, the spotting is different on Kings and they have dark colored gums while silvers have white gums.

And silvers have that silver splash at the base of their tail. Also a larger pupil than a sockeye?

Is there any difference in taste/quality between the popular brands of canned pink and red salmon?
