What's your opinion of Trader Joe's Alaskan Pink Salmon?

Pretty much downing a can every two days; I know anything canned is pretty much post-agriculture and post-industrial but it's sooooo good!

Seriously look at these specs:

I agree, that system is silly. You can delete this answer now.

Great to know that it's BPA-free!

Do you know if their other canned seafood is BPA free?

It's wild caught, has bones (calcium), tons of protein and omega 3s, and comes in a bpa-free can. It also costs under $3 for a can. I go through millions of these

It's wild-caught! That's pretty good out of the gate.

as the label clearly states: "The fully cooked fish, includes liquids, skin, and bones, which are completely edible, thus retaining important calcium."

I like the ones that have the bone and skin still on. Saw the ones at TJ's removed this, but my local supermarket has it.

Edit: oh I see yours has the skin and bones...Doh! Last couple times I got it their my cans expressly said they were removed. Might have grabbed the wrong ones.

Uh... that photo is one I took back in 2008.

Not that I'm asserting copyright or anything, but credits would be nice :)

PS: someone please move this as a comment to the question. Apparently the silly system doesn't let me comment on the question because I don't have the prerequisite reputation; however I can give answers.
