We get grouper cheeks that are delicious. It is really the "cheek"--an"oyster" of meat from the head--in front of the gill (as I recall). I have smoked salmon cheeks when we got a big whole fish one time.

Exactly, just between the gills and eye, and a little lower.

Thanks for the replies, so basically there is nothing to gain except the cheeks. The rest is rubbish? Dang, and I really thought I had something there!

You can put it on a stake in your garden to scare away the other bad salmon

You can always chop it up and bury it in your garden. My parents always used to do that. Supposedly good for the garden. Make sure to go deep enough that the cats don't try to come gobble it up!

I actually thought about that..... I have several aquariums and I use the water out of the aquariums to water the trees, it really makes a difference.

True, it's a great natural fertilizer for the garden, but yes definately bury it good so no critters dig it up.

"fish heads, fish heads
rolly polly fish heads
fish heads, fish heads
eat them up, yum"

ever heard that song? Sorry to hijack, but that was the first thing that came to mind.
