Depth of catch

There are several distinct characteristics that separate a Chinook from the other salmonid species. The Chinook salmon has black gums, therefore it is also called a blackmouth. Its blue-green back and tail are completely covered with tiny spots. An average size Chinook can be between 10lb and 20lb, while a tyee is over 30lb.

Range of shelf life
Three to 7 days, depending on the quality of handling the fish has received.

How to store
Whole fish should be buried in ice with the belly cavity full of ice, since this is where deterioration happens most quickly. Adding ice to the belly slows this enzymatic process.
