A lot of people like salmon pink (raw) inside. If you do, 130 is fine. You want to make sure not to overcook fish. I use a hot oven to bake fish. I also think that 250 is way too low.

Try testing your thermometer in a cup of ice water.

Less is not more. More is more and more is fabulous.

sea level was Originaly taken to be the standard for 1Atm, although Mercury Syphg units are rarely used now also, 101Kpa is the prefered SI unit.

I try to avoid getting Too technical here.
