In Washington, commercial fishermen catch all five species of wild Pacific salmon – king (or Chinook), coho (or silver), sockeye (or red), keta (or chum) and pink (or humpback).
In terms of size, flavor, texture and color, king salmon deserves its royal status and superior price. These magnificent fish are prized for their flesh color, high oil content, delicate texture and succulent flesh.
Most sockeye go to Japan where they are highly prized for their distinctive deep red flesh color. However, an increasing percentage of the catch now remains in the U.S., as the domestic market discovers the superior attributes of sockeye. Like king salmon, the levels of polyunsaturated oils in sockeye give it a succulent textures and rich flavor.
Coho are similar to king salmon in taste, color and texture. Coho are distinguished by their orange-red meat color and firm texture. Their size, relatively high fat content and excellent color retention properties make them popular in both fresh-frozen and smoked forms.
Keta salmon are popular because they combine economy, excellent texture, attractive meat color and delicate flavor. They are lower in calories and fat than other species of salmon. Keta Info Sheet

Managed for Sustainability
Salmon in Washington are carefully managed to ensure their sustainability. The State of Washington sets strict limits on the fish to be harvested each season, which protects a portion of the run and allows it to spawn. Sound Catch fishermen support the efforts of the State to maintain the important resource, catching only surplus salmon. By following this sustainable management practice we can all enjoy a healthy salmon resource in the future.
