Reviewed in the United States on June 4, 2013
I have been buying this salmon for several years. I do so because wild Alaskan salmon is a very healthy food, i.e., it is a good source of healthy protein, omega-3 fatty acids, certain vitamins like D and B-12, certain minerals (e.g., calcium, phosphorus, selenium), etc. Also, it has one of the lowest mercury contents for fish. The advantage of this particular canned salmon is that it has no added salt. In terms of taste, it is better than most of the common canned salmons found in our local supermarkets, but of course it is mediocre when compared to the taste of fresh salmon. I use it exclusively for making the salmon analogue of tuna-fish salad and for making a tomato-based fish and vegetable soup. In those cases, the added seasonings that I used make up for the relatively bland taste of the canned salmon. In regard to the bones, they are very soft, so they can be easily ground up and included in your food. The bones are a very good source of calcium and other nutrients. The skin is a good source of anti-inflammatory compounds. (I would only eat the skin from wild Alaskan salmon. For other salmon sources, such as farmed salmon, higher concentrations of environmental toxins have been found to accumulate in the skin.)

The price for this canned salmon has been consistently increasing over the past few years, but Amazon usually has the best price. Amazon prices jump around quite a bit on most of the food items that I purchase from them, so I usually wait until prices are at the lower end of the range before ordering.
