Would you pay $1000 for a fish to eat? If you want a whole king salmon from the Copper River today, that's what it'll cost you.
First of the year Copper River salmon are in Seattle, but supplies are down and prices are up because of bad weather. At some markets, prices were as high as $50 per pound--$1000 for a 20 pound king like the one in the picture.
Those are nice fish, but that's too much money for me. I'll wait a week and try to find a deal. Wow.
