Whew, Now that is good news Jason, You definitely had me concerned and wondering as you were obviously experienced with canning fish.
When taking my Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) class for food manufacturing. The professor teaching the class would say "Learn to deal with the fact's not tradition or sympathy". I have a neighbor that fits this quote to the T. He cans his fish using the water bath method and insist that it is safe because that is the way his father did it. He gives the canned fish to his friends who intern eat it because they don't want to hurt his feelings.
Keep up the good work and enjoy your mother lode of canned salmon.
