I happen to do King Salmon Fishing at Port Washington area. I stopped at bait shop for some spoons. I asked the owner if Spawning salmons good to eat? He replied, make sure that the meat is pink, if it’s white then don’t eat & trash the fish. Although I wasn’t lucky that day but today my friend caught a Female King Salmon and took home. He found the meat is white and called me. I told him what the baitshop owner said to me. I’d like to validate that statement, which the baitshop owner gave, is it good to eat the white meat or it goes to trash?
