Pink Salmon

Oncorhynchus gorbuscha

Also Known As

Humpback salmon, Humpy, Gorbusch, Haddo, Holia

U.S. wild-caught pink salmon is a smart seafood choice because it is sustainably managed and responsibly harvested under U.S. regulations.



Fresh from late summer to fall, and frozen and canned year-round.


U.S. wild caught from Alaska, Washington, and Oregon.


Pink salmon has a low oil content so it’s generally lean and mild-flavored.


Softer meat than most salmon with a small flake.


Pink salmon’s meat is pale pink and lacks the orange tint of other salmon species.

Health Benefits
