Coho, or silver salmon, is found throughout the coastal waters of the North Pacific Ocean, spanning from Japan's northernmost Hokkaido prefecture, to mainland Alaska and south to parts of California. Often considered to be one of the best for cooking because of its high fat content, it seems Coho salmon was also thought to have been a staple in the diet of several indigenous American groups.
