See, this is what PMs should do: promoting trade. Love Norwegian salmon - best breakfast in the world :) That little guy being served looks like wondering: eh, how come the chef is in black suit today?! : D

Never had Norwegian salmon. Only salmon I've ever had is the stuff that comes in sushi or the live salmon that I catch straight out of the rivers in Idaho.

As long as it tastes good and is sustainable, I'm all for it.

If you've has salmon as sushi, they could be Canadian, U.S. or Norwegian farmed atlantic salmon, the only kind used for sushi. So you may already hae had some. Hope you;'e nbot using the landlocked kokanees for sushi, at least not straight raw.
