Remarks Coho was one of the most abundant salmon species at Cape Ball and was of special importance to the Haida of that area. Fresh coho was an esteemed food; fillets kept only for 3 months due to high fat content; coho eggs (and milt) were separated, soaked in freshwater until hard and white and pounded to a soft butter-like consistency but not suitable to make stink eggs; milt from male coho were sometimes added to jum. See also Ref. 38231.
