Sockeye Salmon (Oncorhynchus nerka)

sockeye salmon flavor, texture, omega 3, and seasonality
The sockeye salmon is also known in the USA as red salmon. Unlike most other salmon species, sockeye feed only on plankton, making it a "vegan” fish.

Sockeye range in size from 2 pounds (almost 1 kilogram) to 9 pounds (about 4 kilograms), with very few sockeye over 9 pounds. Available fresh in wholesale quantities from late June to September, the sockeye’s firm, deep red flesh has good oil/fat content, making it excellent for sushi or sashimi, steaks, fillets, canning or smoked salmon products.
