That's correct, but it is still a good idea to check the can.

Every single can of salmon - regardless of variety - that I've purchased in the last 10 years (which is about when I bothered looking for the designation - lol!) has been marked "wild caught". All of it from Alaska &/or the Pacific Northwest.

"Extinct"? If they're "extinct", then when my friends go salmon fishing every year in eastern Canada, what is it that they're catching?

You might want to check out these sites June. Like I said before - wild Atlantic Salmon is NOT EXTINCT. You are incorrect. In fact, there's an entire association dedicated to protecting those that are left & assisting them in a comeback. And these are just two of dozens of websites about wild Atlantic salmon.

That's very good news. Thanks for the links.

the Atlantic Salmon you are SO emphatic about, is not, however, availablt to commercial fisherman, hence not to be purchased in fish markets. At least, not for the time being.

I had seen a PBS documentary about the last 2 Maine rivers with
returning stocks of Atlantic Salmon which got a lot of help from
Maine Fisheries - the returning stocks are VERY small.
In 2008 there was an optomistic increase in the numbers.
Norway still has returning runs - commercial fishing has been benned there.
When hiking in Cape Breton Island in Nova Scotia and in Newfoundland I saw them running up rivers and spoke with some fly fisherman about it.
They said the returning runs had kept a pretty constant number - commercial fishing was banned.
They are also quite numerous in Labrador.
