I only buy wild Alaskan salmon. I stay away from the farm raised stuff and the Atlantic salmon (which is all farm raised).

IP specifies wild salmon(at most 2x a week). Most wild salmon is lower in fat than the farmed stuff.

As for which wild salmon, I would just try the different ones. I prefer coho if I can get it. Sockeye is one of the less expensive varieties, but so low in fat, it will not grill well. King is... the king of salmon. Large, moderately fatty, and delicious.

Don't buy Atlantic salmon. It is farm raised - google 'salmon farm' and you won't ever eat it.

Alaskan wild salmon is yum! Costco has frozen filets pre-portioned out.

King salmon is my favorite, but it is also the most expensive. I also like sockeye. I haven't had a problem with it having a lower fat content, but maybe because I have never tried to grill it. I always marinate and then bake the salmon for 8-15 minutes (depending on thickness) at 350.
