Be careful - some of the flash frozen wild caught salmon is caught and 
processed by Chinese companies.  I have bought some and it tasted fine, but 
like I said before, I don't trust food from China.  It may be perfectly OK 
or it may have melamine added for effect.  Since the US produces more food 
than any other country in the world, I see no reason to buy imported food 
that is also grown here.  I am talking about commodity foods, not specialty 
food items. Many poor pets were poisoned by Chinese wheat gluten.  We grow 
so much wheat that we pay farmers not to grow it.  Why would we import it? 
Of course some products, such as coffee, are not grown in the US. (Except 
for small quantities in Hawaii.)  I will get down from my soapbox now.

Mike,
Melamine was added because it's a cheap way to increase the nitrogen content in products like milk, baby formula, or 
pet food. The chemical tests for product purity measure nitrogen content as a way of measuring protein. By 
addingmelamine the test results showed a better quality product than was really the case.
There's no sense to add melamine to salmon because it's not tested for nitrogen. That said, I don't buy food from 
Chinaby choice. I avoid inexpensive seafood outlets like Red Lobster because they get most of their fish from China.
