Furthermore, it's the reason that salmon at that stage are a sought after delicacy: the flesh itself is more tender as it is decaying in a unique, stable process during the migration upstream, and makes for a completely different flavor and texture.

Are there restrictions? I'd think it's a bad time to catch them right before they mate, if we're trying to keep population levels up.

Wait, salmon has a season?

Bears know.

Salt & Pepper at the very least. Lemon juice is nice as well

I too am a sharkfucker thanker

Why do they have to go all the way back "home" to mate, though?

[-] thedevisinthedetails 11 points 1 month ago

Probably because their offspring survive better in the freshwater streams than the ocean that they'll live in later in life.

Possibly dumb question: Does salmon taste different when eaten before and after spawning?

[-] [email protected] 32 points 1 month ago

They're basically a pile of mush by the end of their run, about to keel over and die. They don't have any fat and the muscles have been mostly used for energy as well. It gets significantly fishier smelling too, but like, not in a good way.

Some people like it. My dogs used to like to yank our shoulders out of the sockets on walks, trying to go roll around in the ones that flopped on to shore to die. That's not fun to scrub out of an excitable labrador.

Seems like something SharkFucker would do.

How many posts does this community see per day? ANYTHING IS A STRONG “BEST OF” POST

[-] [email protected] 6 points 1 month ago

This is more of a rimjob Steve, it's a cute username that goes with a fish related post. But meh.. I agree..guess it's better than a blank canvas..

I think I've seen sharkfucker before, so there's lore here

[-] [email protected] 12 points 1 month ago

Ig. I really liked the disconnect from the good info and the name.

[-] [email protected] 8 points 1 month ago

I enjoyed this post. Plus this place is starving for any posts.

[-] [email protected] 2 points 1 month ago

Honestly, the name is pretty relevant imo. Sharkfucker420 specializes in aquatic animal reproduction.

Granted, salmon isn’t the main concentration, but y’know, a pro basketball player is probably still better than average at baseball...
