    • Hi Adam, Good to hear from you. Yes, especially when we get a Chinook, we set some aside for sashimi or sushi. They are the fattiest of the salmon, and it’s our feeling that Chinook is one of the most overlooked sushi/sashimi fishes out there. Unfortunately, it seems that often times the “sake” (or “shake”) salmon in sushi restaurants is farmed Atlantic salmon, and it’s just not very good. As far as I know, there is no danger from parasites in wild Chinook, but usually we freeze our sushi fish for at least 24 hours before eating it. By the way, you’ll be interested to know that the some of the pink salmon we’ve been catching have had very nice roe – which we will make into ikura.

  1. It’s marvelous to see and hear about animals in their natural habitat. Excellent catch as well, I think the otter may have been jealous. 🙂

    • Hi Vicki, Thanks for reading. Last night as we were walking the docks, we saw a family of five river otters! We see lots of sea otters, but not so many river otters, and never that close (they swam within 20 feet of us) and never so many at one time. We love living so close to all this!
