Also, cook salmon to 140 F. - there is not enuf 'mass' for residual heat to bring the temp any higher than what it is when removed from the heat source. Also, I don't think I'd ever cook it at 250 F.
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.

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.
