    I disagree. I my early salmon smoking days i fell for the "wild" cheap salmon. Never again.

    All a matter of taste. I’ve smoked it fresh streamside in AK (silver & red), storebought wild, and farmed. Of course fresh wild is best, but I’ll take wild pink or even chum, over farmed. Also prefer the pacific fish to Atlantic by far. I never liked the oily mushy texture of the pen raised fish. Guess they just don’t get to swim enough in those cages and that stuff they feed em..:(.

    Coho and chinook can be farm raised as well.
