Fact or Myth - Salmon pin bones?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello all, A co worker told me today that all salmon have the same amount of pin bones regardless of there size. I can't imagine a 10 pound spring salmon having the same amount of pin bones as a 20 pound spring salmon. I will find out for sure in the next few days as I will be bringing in some fresh wild salmon. But in the mean time can someone verify this??? I personally find it hard to beleive. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

kuan - Yes your right about the human anatomy, Depending if your male or female... One extra rib, Can't remember if its the male or the female.

LOL at CHER.

You've got to be kidding... males and females have the same number of ribs, despite the theological arguments. It's merely the shape of the bones that are slightly different.

Relax - It's nothing more than sarcasm towards a very old ''URBAN LEGEND''.

Although I butcher a lot of salmon I never really counted bones. However a 40 Pound rib of beef and a 33 lb rib have same amount of ribs as well as every other animal I can think of . As does chicken and turkey. Naturaly in a 20 pounder bones would be larger, then a ten. I am 6 foot 4 inches my neighbor is 5 foot 7 we have same amount of structure inside, only mine is bigger.:lol:
