I am looking for whole wild salmon, head on (or custom cut that includes the head.)
There are a lot of sources online, but most have "headed and gutted" fish. So the head isn't included. Ideally this would be Sockeye Salmon (since it is in season), flash frozen and shipped for a reasonable price.
Also, what happens to all the salmon heads? They are regularly eaten in other cultures, and used in raw pet food, but I cannot find a source for wild salmon heads at all!

Have you checked in a river, stream or lake?

Find out where your local upper eschalon seafood restaurants source their fish. Not sure where you are, but most coastal cities have a big wholesale seafood market. A decent large grocery store like Wegmans or Whole Foods or a specialty fish store could order a whole salmon for you.

We get wild salmon filets at a great price through a buying club from Lummi Island Wild, they may be able to source fish heads for you.
