Hate to be a one upper but you will laugh

My buddy, a chef at a lodge in AK, was at a restaurant in the lower 48 and salmon was one of the "fresh catch" specials.

He asked what kind it was. Waitress went to the back to ask the chef.

She came back and proudly claimed "it's SYSCO salmon"

Bwahahahaha

Could it maybe be a boat from Canada, or out of a Canadian port, that went a little south?

Mahi have been caught in the gulf of Maine which borders Canadian land, rare and likely not a source of commercial harvest. However, a Canadian boat fishing in the gulf stream in international waters directly east of their southern ports could potentially clean up on Mahi on a long line at the appropriate time of the year.

My Wife is Canadian and we travel up North frequently. I was shocked a few years ago to see a Commercial boat in Nova Scotia unloading Wahoo and Mahi. I talked to one of the mates that said they were fishing "3 days South". The boat was probably 180ft on the waterline. Say 15kt cruise speed times 72 hours, that could put them off the NC/VA border.

It's not uncommon for them when long-lining/ground fishing is closed or not productive to steam several days South, fish a few days, and come back to a Canadian port.

my wife wants to buy fresh/never frozen salmon all the time. As for me, If its coming from the Pacific Northwest, Id rather them tuck it in the freezer for the ride down south.

They could easily reach Veatch or Hydro out to Lydonia and beyond. I've been in dolphin pretty thick out there, no small fish either.

There's an outside chance it was processed (cleaned & frozen) here in Canada-we sometime see farmed Salmon that says 'Product of China'.

Nope. Must be a store in the US. In Canada all signs have to have metric prices. Can show price/lb too, but needs to have the metric since 1976. Used to be most places showed the price/lb. Much less so now that metric has been here so long. I still have to convert to price per lb to know if its a good price on things though.

There are Mahi landed in Canada, especially given the time of year- and like the rest of their pelagic longline product, 100% of it gets exported to the US for consumption. Same with the entire Caribbean. We regulated ourselves out of business so we could import from our neighbors.
